Meggie knit me some socks! I think sock knitters are amazing, and givers of knit socks incredibly generous. They’re really warm, and a lovely gray, and I show them off to everybody I meet. Which is perhaps a little weird, but… she knit me socks!
They’ll get lots of use in the next few days, too. It’s 5° out right now, and just a few more minutes to milking time. Monday, it looks like it won’t even clear zero, which is highly unusual around here. Like, I’ve never seen it stay that cold all day in the five years I’ve lived here. And this has been a more mild winter, too!
Update: Meggie says she got the pattern from Knit Socks! by Betsy McCarthy. You can probably find this one at the library, and the instructions in this series are usually pretty straightforward. 🙂
