Valentine's Socks

Love Bugs, sort of

I kind of dropped off the radar last week, but I'm fine.  I didn't blog, but I was still knitting.  ESK started a Craft Your Heart Out Flash Challenge on February 1, so there have been a lot of heart things happening here!  I'll show you the rest later this week, but one of the things I'm working on is a pair of socks.

These are based on the Love Bugs pattern and knit in Sweet Georgia Yarns Tough Love Sock in Peony.  I say "based on" because the original pattern is toe up, but I tend to work faster in the cuff down direction, so I adapted the chart for working that direction.  I'll probably stop working hearts when I start the heel turn because I don't think twisted stitches will be comfortable on my foot in a shoe.  I've kind of stalled on these and I really should be farther along on them since the Flash Challenge ends on Valentine's Day, but maybe blogging about them will give me a bit of accountability and get me moving again!  Once I finish the first one, the second should go much faster.  (It better, or I won't have a finished pair of socks by Sunday!)

Sure hope you and your family are doing ok. It must be very frightening to be in a situation like Texans find themselves. Looking forward to hearing an update as soon as you are able.
