Did you know that you can't find brown footie socks anywhere? Well, maybe you can & I just shop at the wrong stores.
I have looked & looked & looked for brown footie socks to go with brown shoes & can't find them in any store.
Black ones. White ones. Pink ones. Polka dots ones. But never, ever brown.
(And yes, they must be footies because regular socks seem to always fall below my heel in these shoes.)
So? What to do?
Find a cool pattern for footies (I found mine here at purlbee) and begin knitting my own pair.
Now if you had overheard my conversation with my sister a few days ago, you would think me
I might have gone off about how hard knitting is - how I can't knit lace to save my life - how I end up with way too many stitches at the end of the row - how the pattern does not match up with the previous row - how, blah, blah, blah..........
Honestly, I am surprised she just didn't hang up on me.
After sitting around, long after my ranting -- I realized something. Just because it doesn't come easy, doesn't mean I have to give up. For some reason, that has always been my mantra (my husband says I do this all.of.the.time.)
So, I am going to fix that.
And it starts with sticking with the sticks, even when it doesn't make sense or doesn't always end up right.

And it starts right now with these brown footies.
