Why I love knitting socks...

I love handknit socks! I love making them almost more than I love wearing them.

The reason I made my first pair of socks was because I was suffering with badly swollen painful legs (another symptom of whatever they want to label my illness this week) and shop socks were just too tight and painful to wear, so the crafter in me was sure I could make a better alternative… and I’ve never looked back. 234 more words

Boggy on a Human

Daughter came over today to eat our food, blacken our fry pan, claim our apple cider vinegar.

Last Knit for Kids Sweater of 2016

Hey Everyone!
