i have discovered sock knitting.
it has started innocently . an impending bday for a family member and out of ideas of things to make (and time) decided to surf my stash and found a pair of SOCK IT TO ME and thought .. why not?
had ventured in this territory once before – one sock of the HEDERA pattern and for some reason abandoned it and have since frogged it – maybe because it was top down and so you start with tons of leg and i must have become bored.
the thing about a new knitting method and me is that i will (and have) spend(t) hours surfing and reading all i can stand about as much of the new method as i can find… and then of course it took hours to find a pattern that appealled and then was not too advanced – even though i am jumping in with all five needles –
so as a true knitter i found two patterns – ON YOUR TOES (Ann Budd) and the wonderful Wendy Johnson’s FINGERING WEIGHT SOCKS pattern .
well that was the beginning of a post a few weeks ago – will continue the story soon.
