Yes, Virginia, I still knit

Testing, testing – is this thing on?

It’s been five months since my last post. I wish I could say that I’ve been productively knitting the whole time, but I’ve been slowly plodding my way through my Jaywalker socks most of that time. I did do a couple of other side projects on the way – I did a couple of hats – but I have not had knitting in my hands very often. I am realizing that as a practical matter this is going to have to change since I live in Seattle now, and I still eschew pants for the much more fashionable kilts.

Did you know Seattle is cold? Cold is relative, I grant; a resident of Manitoba is going to read my assertion “Seattle is cold” and shake their head while saying “Oh you poor, ignorant fool. You don’t know from cold.” But for someone who lived most of his life in the middle of Texas, Seattle can be right frigid. And since my vestments of choice leave my legs exposed from above the knee to the ankle, this means that I need lots of warm knee socks.

I am running low on knee socks. There are not a lot of companies making socks for people in my situation, and the product selection is somewhat disappointing. So, if I want to be properly dressed to both A) look good and B) not freeze, I need to start turning out the hose.

These socks aren’t hose. But they are darn comfy inside my hiking boots.
