These are probably the most complex pair of socks I’ve ever made. They have beads, lace, and cables, and if that’s not enough I’ve decided to do them two at a time. The pattern can be found here. The yarn is Purple Haze by Felt Fusion.
One of the reasons I’m not a monogamous knitter is because sometimes I love the challenge of a complex pattern/construction, other times I need mindless distraction and a pattern I can knit in my sleep (I have been known to snore and knit at the same time, The Fraggles think this is hilarious).
Today is a good brain/bad body day. Mentally I’m feeling sharp and alert, but my body is screaming at me. Days like this are what difficult patterns were invented for. I can put all my concentration into the pattern and take my mind off the pain.
I’m so glad I discovered knitting and a love of yarn, it has honestly saved my sanity.
