Everytime I went to a LYS, I was stunned by the beauty of colors that some yarns had. They were called sock yarn and were fabulous.
But... knitting a sock? That HAD to be hard. Seriously. Dpns, magic loop.... Way too much for my brain!
Until I heard about a "sockalong". It sounded promising! So I found Christine's blog, "Winwick Mum". And let me tell you... This woman is wonderful. The instructions are so clear even a 5 year old can follow them.
|The face of concentration. No, I don't use makeup at home... I was waiting my mom to get ready to go out. I have "one more row" syndrome!|
And so... Here I am! Trying very hard, because dpns, my friend... I feel like I am trying to hug an octopus. But I have to see the pattern from the yummy yarn I bought specially for this occasion develop. And my mom says she REALLY wants those socks. *Hand knitted socks... and sweaters... crocheted decoration items for the home... I love this woman to death but she overwhelms me with crafty requests! :D *
Also, let me brag a little: See this "tube" looking thing? Is my needle holder. Wanna know who made that for me? My grandma! :D She is such a talented lady... All handpainted by herself. She gave me last christmas and I'm in love.
All those details... Perfection. <3
Next thing I am sure to do? A crocheted sock! :)
