Why I Haven't Blogged Lately...

I was at a conference for nearly a week in Palm Springs, California...



...where they have cell phone chargers on the sidewalks.



And I have been working non-stop on these:



I made about 30 of them from the pattern that came with my sockblocker keychain. They're so adorable--and they have everything a full-size sock does: cuff, heel flap, heel turn, gussets, toe decreases. Everything! I have one to tie on a package for everyone on my list.



And the rest I made into a garland:



Exhausting.

Those socks are too cute! Too bad they aren't taking any orders until Jan.!!

They make a lovely garland, very festive.

I love your little socks! They remind me of what I'm knitting for Christmas. And you've also given me an idea for packaging them!
