Socks and romantic

I looked through my blog posts from a year ago and apparently I thought I was going to knit a bunch of sweaters till this summer. Moahahahaha! No. Just. No. I also mentioned that I didn’t own a single pair of socks (well, a pair without holes in them, that is) and whereas I haven’t knit any sweaters this year I have indeed knit socks. Since August last year I’ve knit several pairs of socks and I now own no less than five pairs (and one pair of slippers). Socks has happened even when nothing else has.

When I made these a coworker asked me if they were for a child, she¬†just couldn’t ¬†imagine they could ever fit a grown-up, let alone me. I put one on to show but she was still skeptical. And sure, they might be a little bit of a struggle to put on but they fit wonderfully once they’re on. Like a glove. Not to mention that they are super cute! I’ve worn my socks quite a lot this spring while sitting on the couch writing my BA thesis. It has been a cold spring but I’ve been wrapped in my guinea-pig socks and the cold hasn’t bothered me at all (btw, that’s probably what Elsa meant, she was wrapped in wool and wasn’t bothered by the cold one bit whereas her sister clearly isn’t dressed for snowy weather). Hopefully I don’t have to wear socks that much this summer though, but I sure am well prepared for fall.
