Love it or Leave it: Socks

I like making string into something I can wear.

It’s March 31. That means I should have eight completed wips. It also means I’m celebrating the end of the work week. Break out the bubbly, I have eight frogged or finished projects. This month three projects were frogged. All of them were the start of socks. This was a tough decision. I love knitting socks. I love wearing my knitted socks. Naturally, a good chunk of my orphan wips are sock projects, but once I have my wips down I should be able to finish projects a bit faster.

One sock didn’t have a project page yet. The other was my Blossom. Nothing wrong with these yarns or patterns. I know you’re probably thinking I shouldn’t have cast on so many Malabrigo projects when I’m frogging projects, but I like to think of it as a knitters circle of life.

Here’s a group shot of March’s completed wips. Two are from Malabrigo March 2015. Three are casts on from this month.

To celebrate life this week, we’re celebrating with sloppy joes in the crock pot, sweet potato fries, peach mimosas and the latest attempt at pumpernickel bread. This version has no coffee at all. For the liquid I used a 2:1 ratio of black cherry juice and water. As you can see below, it produced a sort of rustic looking loaf. I think I need to cut back on the liquid just a smidge, but otherwise it was a success. Interestingly, this loaf is just a flavorful as you would expect a pumpernickel loaf to be and doesn’t taste at all like cherries. The British Hubby loved it. It won’t last very long.

I’m safe from the vacuum in here, right?

April is just hours away and eight more new wips to complete.
