Knit-Worthy Momma

My mom brought her socks to me with a request to darn them. DUDE! I knit these for her, like, for.ev.er ago. I totally forgot about them! So, let me rummage around and see if I can dig up the stats and a badly composed picture of the socks.

Ah. Here we are…

I made these socks for my mom six years ago for her birthday.

This means that it was early in my sock knitting life. This means that they are terrible. The pattern is Esther Socks and the yarn is Mackintosh Yarns Skye. I decided to put a sweet tomato heel on them and it makes this weird shape out of the lace. bleck

And they have felted a bit. And they had several holes. Which made me think,

Have you ever received so great a compliment on your knitting that the item you made got used to death and a repair is desired so that it can be worn even more?!?

So, of course I fixed the runs and the holes.

But my momma is getting some new hand-knit socks very soon. And they are going to be so much better than these old ones ever were. Because my mom is very knit worthy!

  1. I knit a friend’s nephew a hat about 3 years ago. 1.5 years in I was asked to fix the crown because the seaming came loose. When I received the hat it was worn out! It is always nice to know your knits are loved. ❤️
