I hope that someday soon I will be able to cross the following off of my Crafty To Do List:
They don’t need to be fancy. No awesome patterns. Just plain old socks. I mainly want to do this because I have a couple pairs of socks from back in the day that I love, love love. They are very log-cabin looking, and so warm and snuggly. But as socks are known to do, they’re worn out. I’ve fixed the holes in the toes and heels but at some point, these suckers are going to fall apart. Now – unlike a few years ago, when I wanted to live on a farm with no electricity where I would knit and churn butter and grow vegetables and run through fields of wildflowers all day (because that’s what life without electricity is like, right?), I am no longer enamored with Making Everything Possible By Hand. But I can’t find this type of sock anywhere that doesn’t cost like $10 a pair. And dude, I am cheap. I am not paying $10 for a single pair of socks. Not when I can get a 6-pack of plain whites for $5. So – I will find a simple pattern, see if any of my existing yarn will work, and if not, look for yarn on sale. AND I WILL KNIT A PAIR OF SOCKS!
Oh, I also want to decoupage some sort of table or dresser, but I think I need to get the small projects under my belt first.
What crafty projects do you want to do? Do you think you’ll ever get around to doing them?
