This has been a very cold January with frequent days of snow, a constant front of arctic air and a few days of blue skies. Thankfully there has been little sign of the usual inversions, the day after day of gloom we hate. The few blue sky days we had have been very welcome, even if they are colder than cloudy days. Today it should be snowing to beat the band.
At this time of year I'm very grateful to have a drawer full of hand knit socks, wool socks, warm socks, (and fleece lined Merrell clogs don't hurt either). It's a rare day I don't wear both socks and clogs.
Even with a drawer full of socks, it's always thrill to finish a new pair. Especially a pair that was as much fun to knit, and is made of such fabulous yarn as this pair. This might be the most unique of all colorways I've knit with to date and I love it. The pattern and color share organic qualities and that's pretty cool, too. You can read in Friday's post just how much I love the pattern and the yarn…nothing has happened over the weekend to change that. In fact, I love them more simply because they are on my feet! (Happy feet!)
