The Daily Purl




Socks have been the focus of my knitting lately. Small but interesting projects I can manage during the hustle and bustle of the holidays. Part of me wants to cast on for a sweater (the season calls for piles of wool to be wound and knit!) but I just can’t take on a big project at the moment. So I’ve been knitting socks. Unrolling small bundles of knits and needles. Savoring the moment when I can get in a stitch to turn a heel or shape a toe.
