Knitting Socks


Some knitters are completely hooked on socks while many others hate them. I was always rather indifferent. I like the result, but I wasn't keen on knitting the same thing twice. Well, now I have the best solution in the world. I checked out 2-at-a-Time Socks from the library and traded some of my yarn for needles on Ravelry and off I went. I started them this Saturday and I must admit I am falling love with socks.

First of all I love this yarn, it couldn't be any more perfect for fall. Also the pattern I chose, since I wasn't super crazy about any in the book, was Monkey from Knitty and I couldn't be happier with it. I haven't gotten to what I'm considering to be the difficult parts yet - such as turning the heal, but I'll tackle that when I get there.

In other news, I recently joined the 21st century. I was never much for reading blogs until I started finding a few here at there that caught my fibery interests, and then I hunted down a few of my friends. I initially just kept the book marks in my public bookmarks on delicious.com (love this site), but last week I took a plunge. I now use google reader, yes, I have enough blogs to read that I have a service to keep them organized and tell me when there are new posts. Truth be told, it is pretty handy. I just hope that my blog is on someone's google reader list.

  5. I use Bloglines instead of Google Reader, but you ARE on my Bloglines list! You have been, ever since you friended me on Rav (I'm the one who used to be in VS in LaJara). I love seeing what you make, as well as your references to Co.
