I gave up on the advent socks. I am making an advent pillow instead. Every day I open an advent box and knit two squares for the pillow. There’s still a lot of yarn left, so I will come up with a plan for it later. The pillow looks like the colored squares are floating on it. The effect is hard to see until the whole thing is assembled. I can see it a little bit now.
These are the Red Robin socks, the last pair from the Handmade Sock Society. Pretend you can’t see that bit of laddering in the middle, okay?
I am getting my swap squares and have started working on getting them together. It is a challenge to get things to match up that we’re made by 10 different people. It is fun, though.
