Socks for Tutu


Well, I know I just wrote that I was relieved to have finished some projects, and I know I wrote, too, that I'm an instinctively monogamous project-maker who gets stressed at having too many things going at once. All of which is true. That said, at least I have a good reason for having another little sock project on the needles.


These socks are slated to be a get-well present for my grandmother, a.k.a. Tutu, a.k.a. Marge. You may know her as the woman who inspired the Marjorie sweater. Unfortunately, she's been in and out of the hospital over the last few weeks with complications from a hip replacement surgery. Things were pretty rough there for a while, but I'm happy to report that she's now back home with skilled nursing care, working at her physical therapy and improving a little bit each day. Nevertheless, it's been an extremely stressful and painful month for her, and for the rest of my family. I took her one of my shawls as a loaner while she was in the hospital, and it was so highly appreciated that I thought a true knitted gift might cheer her up on the journey toward complete recovery. Thus, the Michael Warren jacket suffers another slight setback (sorry, Dad!).


I like to make gift-socks an opportunity to try patterns that intrigue me, but that I wouldn't necessarily wear myself. This novel pattern, Posey, is my issue-mate in the Spring '08 Knitty, and it caught my eye from the first for its unusual, seamed modular construction. I even had the perfect yarn: a lovely sea-colored Koigu which my friend Celeste gave me for my birthday last year. I love Koigu, but this particular colorway tended to pool whenever I tried a more traditional sock pattern with it. Posey is the perfect solution, because all each little square is knitted individually. Obviously, I'm modifying the pattern to be knitted in only one colorway, which I think gives quite enough visual interest, thank you very much.

So whether or not these end up being something I would wear personally, I'm enjoying the process and I hope they'll brighten my Tutu's day.
