i just finished my third pair of socks (still need to get pics of the first two)
and i have to say... i now understand. i was silly to write off sock knitting as, well, silly. i was wrong for doubting that sock knitting was interesting. i was wrong by thinking that i could never make socks...
so i present you with my third pair of socks (the 2nd made from fingering weight yarn)http://www.flickr.com/photos/knewenglandknitter/1181694967/
yarn: Knit Picks Felici in Hummingbird
needles: Knit Picks fixed circulars, size 2
method: magic loop (me don't like dpns)
pattern: Knitty's Universal Toe-Up Sock Formula
i'm now addicted to KP's Felici and i'll be ordering more. this stuff is heaven to work with and heaven to wear.
i am now addicted to sock knitting, and with the help of the Yarn Harlot's book Knitting Rocks!
i am now attempting my first pair of top down socks. and i am going to make the Tyrolean Stockings from the fall issue of IK once i figure out a good yarn sub.
i also now love socks b/c they're so portable. i'm definitely making more
