No wonder there’s a mania about sock knitting. Once you’ve knit a couple of pair, it’s hard to stop!
Maybe it’s because they knit up so fast. If I had nothing else to do but knit, I might have a drawer full in a month! Here are my Guernsey socks (toe ready to be seamed with Kitchener stitch)
Maybe socks are so much fun, because fitting is less of an issue. I mean if I knit a pair of socks and they’re not a perfect fit, I’m still going to wear them.
I may bunch them up a bit at the ankle or deal with a heal that is slightly out of place because they are so functional and homey and warm and fun to wear.
Maybe I’ll make 2011 the year of the sock – to see how many socks I can produce in 365 days. How cool would it be to open a drawer and see it full of socks I KNIT!!!
If you haven’t knit socks before, it’s time to start!
GO KNIT YOURSELF A PAIR OF SOCKS. I bet you’ll have a drawer-full in no time.
Well gotta go! Gotta finish some socks!
