The magic number… 4? 17? 60?

In my current knitting, repetition appears to be a theme. Here are some things I’ve finished recently:

Monkey Socks – pair #4

Now that I’ve stopped knitting squares for the sock yarn blanket, I’m back to knitting actual socks. Curiously, my most recent pair (Hermione’s Everyday Socks) was also the fourth time I’ve knit that pattern. S1 wanted another pair of Monkey Socks, and she picked the red yarn. This is my fourth time knitting Monkey. Do you like it better on one background? Red is not the easiest to photograph! 20180602_173942

A friend asked for this, and I knew it would be easy knitting during school concert season. I got this far during the band concert:20180511_073457

Next came the choir concert:20180516_074011

And I almost finished during the orchestra concert (but decided that grafting in dim light was unwise) – I cheated and took this later:20180525_091805

And finally, I now have 60 squares joined on I Love Leftovers sock yarn blanket:20180526_082154

Yes, I hung a clothesline dedicated to tracking its progress. In for a penny, in for a pound…


  1. I like the green background best -- but you probably guessed that already. Your blanket is so beautiful -- and getting a bit heavy for the line!

  2. You're not kidding. I'm going to have to start displaying it the other direction because it's getting close to the ground at only 8 rows (out of 16).
