I finished Clue 4 of the TTL mystery socks last night. The final clue was released this morning. I will be relieved when these socks are done. There's nothing wrong with the pattern but I really don't care for cuff-down socks and knitting 2 at a time isn't my favorite method. I'd like to knit another pair of socks this month so the sooner these are off the needles, the better.
Part of the reason my other projects are feeling like chores is because all I want to work on right now is my sock blanket. I'm already feeling the pinch of not having diverse enough leftovers. I almost caved and bought some mini skeins but it seems a little silly in that the point of this project is to get rid of scraps. I guess I just need to finish more socks so that I'll have more leftovers to choose from.
Over the weekend I stitched up a simple drawstring bag to hold my sock yarn blanket. I've been hoarding my cotton + steel for awhile now and I thought it was time to get it out and use it. Pretty soon my blanket will outgrow this bag and I'll need a bigger one. I have my eye on this basket but I haven't picked fabrics yet.
