You Can, In Fact, Knit Too Much

Snowflakes

This is the Christmas gift for my Grandma: the February Lady Socks. I had this gorgeous soft 75% merino/25% nylon yarn in white that seemed perfect for something snow-like, and I really like this lace pattern: it’s easy to memorize and looks so pretty! I should’ve been done with them real quick, but I mixed up the cm/inch specifications so I started the toe way too late and had to rip out five centimeters on the first sock. Stupid! Since I also had to finish the last-minute gifts for my aunt and uncle, that left me with one afternoon for the second socks. I managed to knit it in about five hours, but my hands were shaking so much from strain afterwards that I couldn’t even properly gift-wrap it! Still pretty proud of this speed-knitting, though. ๐Ÿ˜›
