  • Understanding Waking

    We have learned beter than that, and know it more;
    for it is waking that understands sleep
    and not sleep that understands waking.
    - C.S. Lewis

    They are finished. My February UFO. My ode to New England. My 102nd pair of socks. The reason I ever bought the book Knitting on the Road. (It was the first knitting pattern book I ever bought, and I bought it "for inspiration" at a time I could barely purl.)The lovely photos and full details, however, were hijacked by my post-call "nap." Notice the pajamas? Yeah, I thought so. I'm off to throw these in a lavendar bath, so I can show you lovely photos later this week.

    How is it that I am this tired when I spend all my off time sleeping?

    the rate at which you can pump out the socks boggles my mind!

    Probably because you spend all of your wake time working like a dog.

    I remember getting that book a few months after I started knitting and being completely overwhelmed by it. It is nice to use things like that as a measure of our "growth" as a knitter! :)

    Beautiful socks. That was my favorite pair to knit in the book next to Whidbey.

    They are indeed lovely! I bought that book to knit Conwy. It's only as I have seen other patterns rendered so beautifully that I have fully come to appreciate it.

    Isn't it a great feeling to come full circle? You went to admiring knitting patterns to knitting the patterns!

    Did you keep track from the very beginning or did you decide one day it was time to count them all up? 102! They must all look brand new since they only get washed every three months or so.

    Great job, Theresa!

    Beautiful socks! I love the idea of a lavender bath for your knits.

    Fantastic socks! I purchased pretty much all of Nancy Bush's books before I could do anything with knitting needles.

    Those look great! And so comfortable, especially paired with a nice set of PJs!

    They are just gorgeous socks! I love the sheen on the yarn you chose as well.
