In Which the Pirate Makes Design Progress.
A long time ago I had the idea to design a trilogy of socks with twisted stitches, and to name them for cocktails. I knit the Boulevardier Socks in 2018, the Sapphire Martini socks in – well, I started them in 2018, knit an entire sock very much too small, got frustrated, started over again while I was unemployed in early 2020, and finished the pair in 2021.
I cast on for the Aviation Socks right after… but here we are, a year after that, and I’m just finishing up the first sock.
It’s not that they’re hard to knit – they’re not! I don’t know what the problem is. I really like how they look, and obviously this one fits me (that’s my foot in the picture!) so that’s not my concern. Am I procrastinating on the knitting because I’m planning to publish the patterns and I’m nervous about how they’ll be received? Maybe so. How silly of me.
