It may be a little warm to be knitting socks but I was feeling adventurous. The thrill for adventure might have come from reading the first novel of the the Anne of Green Gables series. Anne reminds me a lot of myself. Her huge imagination and her thirst for whimsy and enchantment speaks directly to me. Now, I don’t have the same boldness as Anne. Neither am I as outgoing but our colorfulness is enough of a connection.
So, in my colorfulness, I thought that it would be fantastic to knit a light pair of socks to finish reading the entire AoGG series in. And with much drama (As Anne would only have it), I wasn’t going to read another one of the books until these cozy and romantic socks were done. And they had to pink! And mustard was a perfect pairing for pink, I thought. Forget the fact that I had never knitted socks in my life. Forget the fact that I was struggling with Carpel Tunnel. It didn’t matter though. These were going to be socks that Cordelia herself would be proud of.
That is when I happened upon the most perfect duo of wool that I could have ever found. In Anne dramatics, Tusken Knits had a sock kit named ‘Call Me Cordelia’. It must have been fate. Or…I have been stalking Tusken Knits’ yarn for ages. Whatever, it happened and I am not sorry for taking the plunge. They are just the perfect combo of peachy pink and speckled mustard. Total hearts eyes!
Because life isn’t as romantic though, I have only managed to get one sock done. My hands are in awful shape and I am itching to start another book in the series but this will just have to take time.
I am alright with that.
I can use my imagination until then and picture myself cozy in my reading nook. Cold feet nuzzled in beautiful knitted wool and reading more about Anne’s adventures at Green Gables.
