Sock Saga Continues

img_5608It’s 5 days into March and my February socks are mocking me.

No, really. They are laughing at me. They are beautiful and soft and delicate and very, very …. unfinished. I have yet to turn the heel. As a matter of fact, I have yet to even APPROACH the heel. 😦

For those of you who do not make socks, turning the heel is the hardest part of knitting socks and it’s also the marker by which people define just how close to finished they are. If you’ve turned the heel, that means you are well on your way to completing your socks and sliding them onto your feet to keep your toes warm and cozy. Mmm. This is the point at which is becomes clear that you are making socks and not gloves or wrist warmers. Again. I am not even close to turning the heel. Luckily, I’m pretty sure Jen is also behind on her socks. So there is still hope to beat her!

I keep hearing that January lasted a year, but February was over in the blink of an eye and March came out of no where. I’d have to say that is exactly how I felt about this winter. Amid the chaos of the holidays, we bought a house at the end of December and decided to gut it. I have never owned a home and I am certainly not handy. This has been a crazy experience for me. I’m learning a lot about renovating a home. Mostly I’m learning what not to do by examples left beyond by the previous owners.

So, life has been a bit crazy and I have decided that I am not procrastinating on my socks. I am prioritizing! Which is way more respectable, right?
