I finished the Greenhorn socks on Sunday. This, combined with my continuation of the knitting olympics finish-a-thon, means that I currently have no socks on the needles. None. Now sure I have a few single socks lingering in the back of the closet, but I have declared those ‘showpiece socks,’ socks I made to do the pattern rather than to do the socks themselves. That’s somehow different. I’m good at justification, just let it go.
So, what do I do in this oddly sockless state?
Obviously, the book is one option. Much progress has already been made on the book. However, I sort of need my fancy pants book yarn to arrive before I can do any more on that project. The second option is to cast on something completely non-book related, something I can talk about and photograph at will, something just for me with no deadlines or expectations. The third option is to pause, knit nothing for a few days, just abstain from all fiber related activities.
I’m very undecided.
