Socks!

I’m knitting!  A sock! A few of us were lucky enough to be taught by Lori, a friend from the LAMQG.  She’s an amazing knitter (we’re talking CERTIFIED master knitter!!) with an even more amazing yarn stash.

Knitting!

It’s slow going on these size 2 needles but I’m enjoying knitting after putting it down for a couple of nonstop quilting years.  Plus I can sit outside in the amazing summer weather and be crafty!  Some times a sewing machine doesn’t cut it…not very portable!  Wonder if I’ll make it to the second sock?

    I learned to knit socks last year; my teacher was not as illustrious as yours – youtube and lots of froggin (rip-it).
    Love that color!

    Socks are so fun to knit! Perhaps you should look into the two socks at once method because very often we finish a sock and never quite get round to the second hehe

    I bought the book, two at a time socks, and finally found a circular needle long enough,but now am stuck at the heel. Maybe I should try one sock and figure out the heel, then go back to the two at a time…

    It is very hot out today, so maybe that is what I will try out. Too hot for anything else…

    I just finished knitting two super chunky sweaters on 10mm needles and then started a pair of socks on tiny ones – it takes a little getting used to when making “tiny” progress again. I started the one and then quickly started the second when I realized I probably wouldn’t get the second done unless I was doing them together. But it’s more enjoyable to knit on double-points. It looks really pretty – hang in there until you finish the second. :-)

    oh I love making socks..You must try the circular needles that are size two and in a small length for socks.. I love these and only use my dpn when doing the heel and when decreasing stitches for the toe.. I think they go much fast using these and they are made by sachel.
