It is Boxing Day, I had my swim, played with my new tablet all afternoon, and I am listening to my daughter play piano and sing while my husband cooks chili to add to our turkey leftovers.
I knit three pairs of socks for Christmas presents this year, and they were all received joyfully (and they all fit)!
I am proud of myself for finishing in time even though it meant squirreling myself away in my room December 23rd to finish the last sock of the last pair!
I have knit this particular pattern seven times. They are called Tibetan Socks designed by Cat Bordhi and I love knitting them, love wearing them and love gifting them.
They are perfect for yoga, or meditation, camping, or just padding around the house.
I have a blister on my right index finger from powering through the last sock of the last pair.
It was worth it.
I can't be with my children all the time to keep them safe from what life throws at them.
I can make sure they will have warm feet.
