For One Sock Only


It sometimes starts with a striped toe and a fruity loop charm. (I don’t always work toe up socks, sometimes I switch to top/cuff down. My block feet prefer a top down heel flap, but my 4 month per sock slow knitting self prefers the seemingly speedy toe up & short row heel version. Lex steals all the hand knit socks anyways, so no matter if they start as mine, they will end up hers and it just so happens she likes a short row/after thought heels.)


Moving along, not quite to the heel, this is my first self striping yarn and I loved it in the skein, hated it caked and I’m back to loving it knit up. Also switched to a blobby marshmallow charm. (I made this cutie with cold porcelain and it’s my favorite to touch, it’s like hard velvet, silky stone? ..too weird to describe, get your buns over here and rub this thing!)




At the cuff, and a ton of slow ribbing. Oh hey, I shiny glazed my peppermint candy charm!


Cast off, still love the stripe, but not the fit. I’m totally not making a second sock, moving on (look at grown up me letting it go!) I’m usually compulsive about finishing, because it’s not official until there’s a pair, but for some reason this one made me tired, I’m so over this odd sock. Bye.


P.S I recently frosted the lower ½ of the studio windows to diffuse the light a bit and more importantly so people walking/driving by can’t peep in at me being a weirdo in my space. ..such a pretty upper ½ window skyline 💕

Truly Boring


So I guess I really am just as sun bleached SPF 50+ washed out colorless summer fade, plain jane socks and vanilla cake cones as it appears.

Not So Boring Fact: I actually once won a years worth of ice cream :)


It’s been far too warm to work on anything big, so lately it’s been all about the littles.


Little bunny in a linen dress.


Little gummy bear stitch marker, next to a little dpn cozy, stuffed in a little project bag.


Little sock cast on, using that little gummy stitch marker,


or maybe the happy little fruit loop?


Little crochet flower to match my bigger than little English Garden pouch.


Little weird movies & stills for instagram. Not sure if these warm days melted my mind, because yeah…

(literally those fruits were meh)
