So I started this post a month ago exactly. I’ve been really wanting to get back to my blogging space.
I started this tradition back when Ms. E was born in 2015 and I’m loving it each year. She gets a pair of socks on her birthday. It’s kind of funny because she has a mid-summer birthday so socks are really the last thing you need, but it doesn’t stop her from running all over the house with them for days. I do tend to make them a smidge bigger so she can have them for fall.
I have since finished these socks and they already have some miles on them. She picked this yarn from my stash and it was a delight to knit something so fun for her.
Part of making socks for her is not only having these pairs of socks in her memory box each year, but it’s fun to see how she has grown. I get a tracing of her foot and put it in my “sock stuff” box where I have started keeping tabs on the folks I knit socks for. These small feet outlines make me smile every time I see them.
I hope to get back to this space more than once or twice a year. I think it’s highly doable.
Until next time…
