Time for winter knits

For knitters, I guess winter is always an exciting season. Let me tell you, I used to HATE, DISTASTE, LOATHE, ABHOR, winter. One winter in Santa Barbara when I had an apartment on the 3rd floor of the building, I almost couldn’t make it all the way up because it was so cold, and I was shaking too much to walk any further. That’s how I feel in cold weather.

But ever since I became a knitter, winter now has at least 1 aspect I look forward to. Knits. Even in California, I start layering vests and long sleeve sweaters from October/November, all the way up to March the following year.

I got so excited when I saw these sky-high (over the knee) socks at A Cup of Jo blog. Apparently, there was a feature on New York Times magazine about the sky-high socks, as well as chunky knits.

These Prada-like socks were all the rage few months back. If anyone is interested, the pattern is available on the source of the above picture.

Other than that, life is pretty sweet. I officially moved into Marty’s apartment; we picked up our marriage certificate this afternoon. Still doesn’t really feel that much different from when we were dating. =P Unpacking was a pain but everything looks pretty cool. Marty’s been so good with lifting heavy boxes haha.
