Widdershins on the Rebound

My Darling Widdershins,

You knew that you would not be alone for long. I know that you must have been devastated when Liz kicked you to the curb, but I saw my opportunity. I had been eyeing you from afar for months now waiting for my chance to try my needles on your clever pattern.

I know I was a clumsy knitter for our first time together. I was trying to rework the pattern for my 4-year-old and I had to keep re-knitting to get the fit just right. But you made it all so easy and natural.

My only regret is that I was so casual about our project – small stash-busting socks. I know you thought I was just using you in order to finish up oddments, and, truth be told, I was. By the end, I was so completely smitten with your heel flap that I wanted the project to last longer – much, much longer.

I am yours Widdershins.*

With Big Knit Love,

*On an as needed basis of course: I do reserve the right to keep seeing Nancy Bush. She is a jealous mistress and I must not stray for long …

Pattern: Widdershins by Brooke Chenoweth Creel
Yarns: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids, Burgundy (toe); Wildfoote Vinca Minor (cuff); Claudia’s Handpainted Purple Earth (main color)
Needles: US1s dpn
Notes: I made these to fit a child’s size 10 and just adjusted things as I went. It was marvelous!

I didn't think it was possible to be more excited to see you, but this post just did it. Hilarious!!!!

We have one sexy little blog all the sudden...I guess it's been a Long Hot Summer.

P.S. The socks look great. :-)
