my third pair of socks
July 11, 2016
I’ve finished knitting a third pair of socks:
Most complex yet. I used a pattern from The Enchanted Sole by Janel Laidman, and the yarn is “Stone Walk” from Western Sky Knits. Pretty darned fancy, all told. I’m also told I’m super-successful because I’ve actually done both socks on every pair I’ve knitted so far. Heh.
I don’t think I’m really a fan of knitting socks. Hand-knitted socks are super-comfy, but they seem to take me a really long time to do. And then you have to do it all over again. Tiny stitches, tiny needles, and stress about whether it’s all going to fit when you’re done. I really like knitting scarves — much more meditative, I think, and they always fit. So, I’m going to take a break from socks for now. Go back to knitting a few Jayne hats, with big chunky yarn.
