Oh dear, I've got the sock knitting bug. As if I needed another thing to be doing... I've never wanted to knit a pair of socks before since I really don't get on with dpns but since I discovered the magic loop method of using a circular needle I thought I'd give it a try. I'm not sure if my way of doing the magic loop is the 'proper' way, but it works for me.
I've been surprised how fast it's grown and best of all I won't need to sew it up at the end! This colour (very Christmassy I think) was chosen by my eldest, who was most upset that I was thinking of knitting a pair of socks not for him. Who knew that a pair of hand-knitted socks was such a must-have for the fashion-conscious teenager? So I'm going to have to wait for my own pair... good thing I am enjoying the process!
I shall be taking a blogging break for the next few days while I take time out, spend some time with younger son, maybe do some sock knitting, maybe a bit of weaving, that sort of thing... I'll be back soon!
