These are my March socks. I know I should have caught up with the seasons and cast on the April socks, but I don't currently have any spare needles. (Unless you count the wooden ones, which I don't - because I can't take them in my work bag, for fear of breakage). My plan of knitting lots whilst not working in January, may have worked for a bit - but I am now officially behind on my box o' socks for 2018.

I've also got at least one pair of socks from last year which need finishing, and three pairs which need the ends weaving in.
So, if I state it loud and clear here - then it has to happen, right? Between now and the end of the weekend, I'm going to turn the heel on these, turn the heel on my outstanding Hermione's and weave in the ends of my socks from last year. I should probably weave in the ends from my January socks too, or else I'm going to be in this same pickle in twelve months' time.
I've also got a couple of ideas for sock designs; I'm just not sure if I'm brave enough to start swatching...

The most exciting thing about this post is the massive numbers of people who have joined in the Once Upon a Sock crew. Having previously been called 'a bit weird' for noticing the socks that people were wearing (I don't know why I talked to him again, either) - it's so nice to have found my tribe. Happy Sock-ing, ladies!
