I did finish these socks (they were started last year in October 2013). I'm not really sure why I never finished them. They are all of my favorite colors. Sometimes I start a relatively plain sock (though hand knit socks are never plain to me), and it becomes a bit boring to me. The yarn was nice. I knit it on size 2.25 mm (US #1) and got a nice fabric with it. I knit it with a picot edge - which is a cool way to add a little pizazz to your knitting (in my opinion). The knitting was mindless and good for times when I didn't want to focus entirely on my knitting. But they just didn't fly off the needles.
Now that they are done, I like them, and I like the fit. But I think I need a bit more of a pattern or something to distract me. Or not. Sometimes I think I over-think this knitting thing.
Knitting is more than a hobby or craft to me. It is a love that calms my spirit and fuels my creativity. I'm so glad I'm a knitter.
