Scrappy socks, finished
Well, they're finally finished. This is the longest I've spent knitting a single pair of socks. Granted, they had a long hiatus while I monogamously knit on my Swoncho (post on that to come soon, I promise).
Despite the delayed timeline, once I picked them up again, I was able to finish them quickly. As I've said before, there is something rather satisfying about making a project entirely out of scraps. What is not quite is satisfying is weaving in 42 ends, but that's alright. Like anything else, you just do the next right thing, weave in the next end, and soon enough, all the ends are woven in.
They fit well, although they might fit even a little bit better once they stretch out slightly. But I'm happy to have cute scrappy socks. And now I'll stop rhyming. ;)

Yarn: various scraps of sock yarn, leftover from several projects
Pattern: Emily's Favorite Socks
Needles: US size 0. I sized down from the pattern recommendations for needles, as is my usual for my loose tension.
Specifics/modifications: a rounded toe, per usual. I use the instructions from the Late Night Socks pattern.
Creativity check and finished projects, late May 2023
I've been fairly prolific (by my own standards) lately in terms of sewing and knitting and I figured it was time to share some of them! With spring and summery weather, I always feel a shift in terms of my creativity. I still want to knit with wool, but I see myself drawn a bit more towards color or lighter tones and printed fabric. I'll share below what I've been up to!
Kerti sweater, finished
Just in time for summery temperatures this week, I've finished a sweater in a dreamy, lightweight wool. I've set a new personal record for sweater knitting, start-to-finish with this one.
Creativity check and finished projects, spring 2023
Spring is here! And with it, I find myself wanting to start all kinds of new projects, but I've been holding onto some self control and trying to wrap up my current projects, somewhat successfully. Since my last check-in, I've finished a few knitting and sewing projects, made progress on some current projects, and made plans for upcoming projects.
