I pulled out a pair of scrappy socks that I knit last year. I loved them but I never sewed in any ends, so I never actually wore them. I put them on and I didn’t love how they fit anymore, when I knit them, I was only knitting toe ups and FLK heels. Maybe my feet have changed because I don’t love either of those anymore.
I decided I would frog the socks since they were never worn, so all the yarn would still be in great shape. I crocheted granny squares out of all the yarn that was in the socks.
I can’t remember when I started crocheting granny squares from sock yarn but the count is at 50 now. They’re cute, small squares, only three rounds. Eventually, I’ll be making them into a blanket but I think I will need a lot of them, so I’m just going to keep crocheting without a layout plan. They’re very relaxing to crochet up.
Besides frogging and crocheting, I managed to finally cast off a sock! I haven’t cast on the second yet, I’ll cast it on soon, I fear this sock could give me a case of second sock syndrome. I love the finished sock, but for some reason it felt sluggish to me, so I better get casting on that second!
Now to my reading! I mentioned in my last post that I finished reading The Nest and I am now reading Lily and the Octopus. Another book that I didn’t have much information about before reading, I’m starting to think that could be a good thing sometimes, I’m really enjoying this one! I’m not the best at explaining books anymore, I used to love writing what I thought about books, I don’t know when that stopped. I’m going to try to be better about writing even small reviews after each book. I’ll start after finishing this one. You can add me on goodreads if you want to see if I actually manage it!
have a great day!!
