Seven years later.

It’s my 7 year blogiversary! Heck yes. I think this blog is getting better with age, or at least it gets increasingly more fun for me to write. How can we not improve at something we routinely practice? I really wish I was celebrating my blogiversary at Rhinebeck, but maybe I’ll get to do that next year. Hope all of you Rhinebeck goers are having a blast!

Here is one of the secret projects: sock trio-2I got to hand over the trio of socks to the parents at their son’s 1st birthday party yesterday. They indulged me and opened the gift before we had to leave.

Classy as hell

They’re a colorful sight.

sock trio-3I hope they fit little Charles. I tried to measure his foot against my hand when we were over at their house for a play date last month. These, and a pair for Z have comprised my Socktober work thus far, but the month isn’t over! The pattern is my own: Kiddo Kicks. If you want details about the yarns, check the Ravelry project pages here, here, and here (left to right).

I was really hoping to release the cardigan pattern with my blogiversary, but it’s still in tech editing. I will definitely be done in time for NaKniSweMo and I plan on releasing it with a bit of a discount for the occasion. I’d like to be generous for my blogiversary, so I’ll gift 3 commenters (chosen at random) with one of my patterns of their choice gifted to them on Ravelry or through email. This can include the future men’s cardigan pattern, which I’ll be able to gift as soon as it’s released. I’ll pick the winners on Wednesday by 10 am. Please leave your Ravelry name in the comments, or make sure you use a working email when you leave a comment.

Thanks for reading! I’m so happy I’ve made it seven years so far!

  1. Love the kiddo kicks ; ) it’s been a long time since my kid’s feet were this small…I am working on a pair of socks for my son and the foot is 10 1/2″ long.

  16. I can’t believe you’ve been blogging for seven years, that’s so impressive to me. I was starting middle school seven years ago. I hope you keep going for years to come; it’s fun to watch your family grow, and your socks. ^^

  17. Too late for the giveaway – when will I learn to stay on top of my blog reader? Congratulations on your blogging anniversary (and the adorable socks, of course)! Thanks for sharing your knitting with us.
