Each day I knit
and I breathe,
and I wrap it all
together into 
this life.

For many years I wanted to
learn to knit
so I could knit socks
and seven  years ago
this month, with the
help of Youtube,
I taught myself
this amazing craft,
 and I've been knitting
every day since.
.I usually like
to have only
two wip's going
at once, but I seem
to have thrown that
rule out the window
and now...

have three pairs
of socks in progress.

 Using yarn imported
from Germany,
 soft and colorful
 yarn spun by
a dear friend,
 and self striping
 yarn mass produced
for a box company.,
 worked on
 Knitter's Pride
Karbonz dpn's,
 Brittany birch dpn's
and Hiya Hiya 9-in
circular needles
slowly I make socks.

I am thankful in more
ways than one for having
this fiber love in my life.
On my night stand is a beautifully
written book...

  1. What a beautiful post Tracey. The photos, as always, are lovely, and those yarns look amazing. Happy knitting my friend.

  2. I love to knit socks! It can be one of those mindless "knit while watching TV projects" or you can go all out and knit a fancy pattern. And who doesn't like a pair of handknit socks as a gift? I haven't knitted in days... Got to the sleeve part of my cardigan and realized I didn't have the right length needles. Argh.. Off to get them today finally.

  3. Isn't sock knitting amazing? I can't tell you how many pairs I have on the needles. Yours are just beautiful and will bring you much joy!

  4. Your photos are lovely! I love sock knitting, but I don't think I ever finish two of the same sock...maybe I should just start a new trend of mis-matched knit socks. That works, right?!

  5. I don't think I have been without a pair of socks on my needles in over 10 years. It is definitely comfort knitting. So many pretty pairs you are working on. One of those skeins looks familiar :-)

  6. Such gorgeous photography and love your socks! You've inspire me to use my camera more :)

  7. So much sock yarn, so little time. I'm lovin' your socks Tracey! I always have 3-5 pair on the needles. I pick up whatever I'm in the mood to knit.

  8. Your stripey socks are so pretty...looking for the book now...

    ~Have a lovely day!

  9. I love your socks. The longer I knit the more I end up having multiple wips going at once... it doesn't bother me as much as it once did to have such divided attention. Your photos always inspire me.

  10. I am so happy you picked up knitting one day and created this space!

  11. Your socks look great. You're such a natural.

  12. Beautiful pictures! Lovely sock yarn!

  13. Being able to knit is awesome! Socks are addictive, yeah? I forget, did you drop off all of the charity socks? How were they received? What is that grassy looking flora you've photographed? I like how it's knobby.

  14. Look at all those gorgeous stripes! I knit a pair of socks a few years ago and they didn't fit right in the toe, so I haven't knit any socks since. But lately I've been thinking about trying another pair. I'm itching to get some self-striping yarn!

  15. Beautiful post!
    Love the socks in purple, pink and yellow :)

  16. Love the candy floss coloured sock. You have so many on the needles at onebtime!

  17. This post makes my heart soar.
    All of your socks are beautiful, my friend.

  18. Wow - you taught yourself to knit with Youtube?? Wow, that gives me hope that I too can become a knitter one day! Thanks for he inspiration and lovely photographs! Have a great weekend.

  19. I remember you learning, so I guess I've known you for many years!! I am glad you knit socks and we met!!

  20. Beautiful post Tracey!!! Happy knitting anniversary!!! Your socks look amazing. <3

  21. You make me want to run right out and cast on more socks! (I only have one pair on the needles at the moment....although I just finished two other pairs. Maybe that counts!) (I like the wire basket that yours are living in at the moment!)
