- Another pair done! I'm on such a short row heel kick and wanted to cheat and go the easy route on these, but was afraid a short row heel wouldn't fit Doug. Am I wrong about this theory? At least I got to tell him I love him "a gusset heel much." πŸ˜‚. This yarn is Regia Pairfect Sock in color 7113. I highly recommend it. Those stripes at the top go so fast which eats up a good chunk of knitting these babies. Also for future reference for myself, I cast on 68 stitches for the ribbing, decreased down to 60 stitches on the first two stockinette rounds, and knit these on 9" circulars size 0's.

- Bonus @a_homespun_house Easter Egg Hunt Socks done! I may have accidentally made one cuff longer than the other, but they're going to stay that way. It adds to their charm. I didn't get a chance to wish everyone a Good Friday or Happy Easter, but I am so thankful for this holiday. I read and heard a lot of things this weekend, but Sally Lloyd-Jones' Storybook Bible account of the crucifixion of Christ spoke straight to my heart. "'You say you've come to rescue us! people shouted. 'But you can't even rescue yourself!' But they were wrong. Jesus could have rescued himself. A legion of angels would have flown to his side - if he'd called. 'If you were really the Son of God, you could just climb down off that cross!' they said. And of course they were right. Jesus could have climbed down. Actually he could have just said a word and made it stop. But Jesus stayed. You see, they didn't understand. It wasn't the nails that kept Jesus there. It was love." Happy Easter, everyone! He is risen!

- April @a_homespun_house socks done, with plenty left over for a second pair! Here I thought I'd avoid the fuss of doing contrasting heels and toes on the first pair, but it turns out they really break up the knitting and make me go so fast. The first sock on this second pair was done in a day! I'm really loving short row heels again after finding a dead simple YouTube tutorial by @arnecarlos I might have to work on the fit a little to make the heel deeper, but it sure looks nice!

- I just finished this Farm House Cardigan by @savoryknitting which only took me about a week to knit. The Aran weight Homestead @plymouthyarn sure helped me to complete it so quickly, but this pattern was also fun and just interesting enough for me to want to pick up in the evenings. I sized down a little more than usual since I knew this yarn has a tendency to relax after blocking, and the fit is perfect! Another neutral cardigan for the rotation! πŸ˜‚πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

- Hi @woolvanknits πŸ‘‹πŸ»! Two weeks ago, Natasha asked me #widn not knowing that at that exact moment, I was being wheeled into excision surgery for endometriosis! It seems fitting since she's been such a kind cheerleader about living with a chronic illness. The last six months have been an incredibly hard and intensely blessed period in my life that I hope to be able to explain at some point. Getting to surgery and the surgery itself were complete miracles, and things have gone so much better than we were all expecting and preparing for. I'm doing amazingly well and have had a huge burst of energy that I haven't felt in years. I'm loving being medication-free after years of painful treatments and daily pill routines, and would be thrilled if it stays this way! Life is a little disorienting now since scarcity, exhaustion and depletion have been the normal for us, and I fear I'll lose touch with what it means to need. For now, I have to just remind myself to breathe instead of preparing for the next hurdle. #abkalwaysbeknitting #mykidsmademethegetwellgifts

- My only Valentine. He invited me on a walk 15 valentines ago, then asked me to marry him exactly one year later. We've been through more than we could have expected - heartbreaking loss of babies, jobs, friendships, homes, and then what we were worried was our last goodbye three years ago as I was being wheeled into a life-saving surgery. This photo was taken by my brother-in-law @thecraighensel back in October at my sister's wedding and I'll cherish forever, but still not as much as I'll cherish this man in the photo.
