Comfort Knitting

This week I've been struck with a nasty virus. I didn't have the mental capacity for the complicated cables the green sweater required so I turned to a bit of comfort knitting. When I began knitting socks were very scary things. I could grasp the concept of how yarn could turn into a scarf and that a sweater was just a bigger scarf. I couldn't figure out how it turned into a tube and the heel was a complete mystery. I decided to trust the pattern. It felt a bit like waving a wand and hoping some magic would occur, but I created a sock. Three years later and socks still hold a bit of magic. However it's now magic I'm familiar with and making a basic sock is like working with an old friend.

Hopefully by the time I finish the second sock the last traces of this bug will be gone and I'll be able to return my attention to the green sweater. 


  1. Love that orange color. Hope you feel better.

  2. Hope you feel better soon, comfort knitting can be just what you need sometimes :)
