Socks, take two

I got a call from my sister yesterday, which got me motivated again. She ordered a Piglet from me. Well, that gives me a reason to knit, or better yet in this case crochet again. So off we go, but before I make this little piggy I also talked to my niece, which would be really happy to have some new hand knitted socks. Can you believe I have someone other than me that will actually wear them? So I went and dove into my sock stash again. I didn't want to use the same yarn that was linked to my last failure, so I got a different one. One of those sale yarns, 99 cents a pack yarns, but still with the right contents and gauge.

I saw this simple, but fun pattern on Monika's blog and jumped to it and here we are, more than half a sock is already done. See, I can knit them fast, if I have the motivation for it. I had to turn the flash off for the pattern to show better, but I'm knitting again. Socks with my trusty short row heel and no problems. Great.

Ah, so glad you are knitting again. When the knitting is right, all is right with the world. Can't wait to see the piggy. I haven't seen it before. Hope you have a good weekend.

Glad you're knitting again. I really didn't want to pass on any bad knitting vibes to you! And if you're so easily motivated, could I convince you that I need one million dollars and you could help me with that? Is that how it works? Just kidding. Have a great weekend!
