I got so wrapped up in my sweater-knitting that I forgot to show you the socks I made.
These socks are so warm and cozy! They are very thick because they're made with Aran weight yarn, which also made them easier for a new knitter like me to make. Everything I make these days seems to be green, but I especially love the fern green color of these socks.
I named these the Cabin Socks because I finished them just before our spring break getaway and wore them every night of our trip. I actually wore them over some thinner wool socks, so they served as kind of slipper socks to keep my feet extra toasty while we stayed up playing board games and drinking wine.
I knitted these in a class at The Knit Nook, which is sadly closing its doors at the end of this month. The class was very fun and educational. I learned lots of new knitting skills: using double-pointed needles, making short rows, and grafting the toe with kitchener stitch.
I am so sad that my local yarn store is closing and regret not taking classes before now. However, I am glad to be able to spend even a little bit of time there. I've gotten to know some great knitting teachers and students. I think after the store closes I'm going to have to find a knitting/crochet group to join because I have enjoyed getting together to share projects and tips.
