I could say that I don’t like knitting socks. In fact, I used to say just that. But can that be true if I have four pairs of socks on the pins right now?
Deep down, I wish I were a sweater knitter. I do! I wish I could crank out tweedy, stranded, cabled, shaped, buttoned, hooded, zippered beauties. But lately, all I feel the urge to do is knit socks.
I’m selfish with my knitting. I don’t knit anything that isn’t making me happy. Sure, there are projects or parts of projects I will slog through, but I’m only gonna knit what’s fun. It is a hobby after all.
The sock phase will pass, I’m sure. Probably to be replaced by a hat phase. Man, I love knitting hats. Or maybe there will be a spinning phase (see the handspun peeking out of the bag?). Perhaps even a sweater phase!
For now, just socks. And I’m happy about it. The challenge will be finishing them all before the phase passes.
