socks!

by Nova on August 6, 2012

Under the guidance of my (ever patient) knitty mentor Fi, (and fueled by scrummy cakes & biccies) I cast on my first pair of socks at the weekend. Yippee!  Thanks Fi x

Thanks to Amanda too for her socky words of wisdom & advice. Also  for recommending this fab book (Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy D Johnson) as a perfect starting point into the world of sock knitting. Even if you don’t want to knit socks the pictures are just nice to drool over.

Not content just to attempt socks & getting to grips with all that gusseting & heel turning business, the pictures drew me in & I couldn’t resist trying my hand at a bit of pattern knitting too - in for a penny & all that ;)

I’m making the Diamond Gansey Sock pattern  from the above mentioned book. Yum.

All the Knitty details in Ravelry.
