Did you happen to see today’s Knitting Daily Post? Sandi challenges knitters everywhere to make 2008 the year for knitting fearlessly. I must have been channeling her yesterday or something because I decided to conquer my fear of sock knitting in 2008, so I started on the very first day! Here’s what I’ve got so far:
This is the Class Sock from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch and I am on the heal flap. I was too scared to just jump right in with real sock yarn. So does this look right so far? I’m using too circs right now but I may have to use dpns later on. I have 3 US size 1 circular needles and 2 US size 3 circs, but only one US size 2 circular needle. Maybe this is what my Mom can get me for a belated Christmas present. 😉
It was back to the old grindstone today. Nothing too bad, in fact I actually figured some things out that were plaguing me before the break. Nothing like a little time off to step back and regroup.
