Knit socks - Pair 2
Instead, I finished my second pair of knitted socks. These turned out without a glitch as I think I am getting more comfortable knitting them. I used same circular needle as in the previous pair (see post and picture here), and this time I actually made sure the size was right by trying it on as I made it. Also, I found this tutorial for stretchy bind off and used it on this pair: the ribbed edge is soft, beautiful, and very stretchy!
Since I am a newbie at this, I prefer to just play with yarn color as opposed to changing patterns. Once I can knit the socks in my sleep, I will try to other patterns.
Bonnie from City Home/Country Home (you have got to check out her blog!) said I should make one for myself, as I am making these for my mom. Well, I think she is right. I tried these on and they felt wonderful on my feet!
As with crochet, knitting is very relaxing. It came in handy this weekend when things were sort of crazy at home. I wonder if people realize how many lives are saved because we busy ourselves with crafts...
The round robin quilt will have to wait until tomorrow. The headache lingers despite Advil, a little caffeine, lots of fluids. Oh, well.
