I am in sock knitting mode over here. I finished the hubby's size 12 gigantic socks and I have moved on to socks for myself. Yes, I know I have several pairs of hand knit socks but, I am the knitter, it is my perogative to knit for myself. I am being selfish right now and doing something for me. I usually knit for everyone under the sun but, now it is me time.
I chose to use a Elann sock yarn, it is cotton, wool, nylon and elite. The color is the turquoise, light gray, blue and light turquoise. It is really pretty so far. This time around, I am knitting from the toe to the cuff. I just have to say how much quicker they seem to go doing this method. I am not one of those people who knit two socks at a time, that just takes the joy out of the whole project.
I am still researching my sweater pattern. I have been thinking about it and I need to install the software for it. I have so much going on in my life that working on my sweater is going to take some time.
I started working on the sock for myself last night, I was able to knit about 4 inches of toe and today I am going to work on it in between doing laundry and whatever else needs my attention today. If I can turn the heel, I will be so ecstatic about it. I have been trying the sock on and it feels so wonderful. I love this yarn. It is so soft and silky feeling. After this pair of socks, it will be time for Maribeth socks. I am going to rip out the cuff I have started and start them from the toe as well. I am back to knitting socks from the toe to the cuff. I had stopped because my bind off always was too tight. I have now learned to be patient and take my time with my bind off.
Patience makes it all work out. I just have to keep this on my mind and not be stressing when I am binding off.
