Last year – on June 1st, I decided to knit my way through The Joy of Sox. On November 8th, I started the tenth pattern- these Make-Up Socks. But then knitting a few Christmas gifts distracted me, and I was slow to get going again on my project.
In the last couple of weeks I decided I was ready to get going again. For one thing, I enjoy seeing Davey’s feet in the pictures. If I wait too long his feet will be bigger than mine!
So last night I finished sock pattern #10 – Make-up Socks.
They were a challenge. I have blogged about them quite abit. They were always fun but pretty slow going at times.
However, I learned to knit a pair of socks on 2 circulars. I enjoyed the 2 circulars very much. I am happy though to go back to my dpns for the next pair.
I had to do lots and lots of small cables. I really learned how to “read” cables much better. Also, those little leaves where you increased 1 stitch to 5, knit it several rounds and then decreased back to 1 stitch were so cool. I look forward to using them in another pattern. I can see knitting a really pretty hat with them climbing up the sides.
I was glad to have my “photographer” and “photography assistant” helping me again!
