Frogging – ribbit, ribbit

So the socks that I mentioned in my last post? I’m frogging them. It’s a fantastic pattern, but I was nearly done the first sock (and by “nearly done”, I mean I was able to do the toe) and I realized that I really hated it. I love the yarn, I love the pattern, but I just didn’t love the two of them together. I’m definitely going to do the Knot Socks sometime again in the future in a different type of sock yarn – probably some kind of gradient or semi-solid (not something that’s self-striping and self-patterning, too busy for the cable pattern). I think I’ll be using the yarn in simple ribbed socks (for me!). It’s kind of a relief, in a way, to frog them. Even though I spent around 20 hours on the (incomplete) first sock, it’s still worth it to me to frog it then to continue and spend another 20+ hours to complete the pair and then just to hate the socks in how they look. So – plain, ribbed, stockinette socks. That’s what that yarn is destined to be.

Besides those failed/frogged socks, I haven’t had a lot of time to craft. The term is ending soon (finals this week!) so obviously I’ve been busy with that. I do have quite a few projects that are currently on a mini-break while I’m busy studying, doing notes and such, but I do hope to share some progress with you all soon (possibly next week?). I have some doll clothes to share, as well as some other projects that have been sitting in time out for a while now that I really want to get out and finish!

I also want to share a list of crafting-related podcasts that I like to listen/watch, so I’ll be working on compiling a list of those as well (just a heads up – most of them are knitting related. There’s a lot of knitting-related podcasts, I need to find more crocheting and general crafts ones!).
