Back in style

27 Aug

Many people have back to school traditions. Some people take a yearly photo. Some people have breakfast traditions. For the last few years, I’ve knit socks.

This year, I had my 2019 back to school socks ready for the first day of inservice week.

These are knit in a colorway called Patience. It seemed appropriate.

My 2018 socks were knit in No. 2 Pencil.

The 2017 school year started shortly after the eclipse. Naturally, this colorway was called Total Eclipse of the Sun.

In 2016, I used this yarn, Fall for Barrie, for another project, but had enough left over for a pair of shortie socks.

Hand knit socks aren’t cheap, but it makes me happy knowing my feet are sheathed in something made by my own hands.
