a year worth of socks

i started knitting again on january 24th of last year, and since then have knit 15 pairs of adult sized socks, and a ton of baby sized socks as well. two pairs were completed this past week. one was a pair i started to have some airplane friendly knitting on bamboo double pointed needles, here shown below still on the needles. full info on this pair here.

the other pair were a pair that gave me a bit of a headache in more ways than one. they were first started october 13th, and thusly are the slowest pair of socks i have knit as i finished them today. i don’t think i love this pattern, mostly because it kicked my butt not in a friendly way, but in more of an annoying older sibling way. i don’t think i will ever knit this pattern again, but dang they sure look good when they are finished! here are my Thelonius socks in all their glory (ravelry page here):

ten of the fifteen pairs (and all of the baby pairs) have gone to homes other than mine. i like to think people have some happy feet. also it pains me to say that all the pairs i knit for other people went 10 times faster than the pairs for myself! it just goes to show that i am definitely a knitter, not just a scarf knitter, but a full-fledged knitting obsessed wool addict. that, and i will never have cold feet.
