Well, I got over the second-sock-itis. Woohoo. 4-ply takes sooooooooooo long. I bow down to those patient knitters that choose to knit 4 ply on a regular basis. My impatience almost dictates 8 ply at a minimum.
So, here are my first ever pair of socks.
I really don’t like the pattern I followed to knit these. Well, I don’t like the heel and the toe, so that’s most of the pattern. I did manage to get the pattern repeat to be almost identical on both socks, which is a good thing for symmetrical mama here. Kiri is quite chuffed and is proudly wearing her new, warm socks.
Which reminds me about my post the other day, that I want to make more knitted items for the kids. And with Christmas six months away, I have a bit of time to get myself sorted. I hope. Anyone that knows me, knows that i am ALWAYS late. I never get anything done or sent on time.
I shamefully went to Nancy’s today. I love to just go and look, or buy. Oops. But I did find this great knitted toy book. Guess what some of the presents will be under the tree this year!
