Not yet, alas, but I`m thrilled to see that I`m now down to 888th on the list, as opposed to the upper 3,000th that I was a month ago. I get the impression that a lot of forum members and bloggers are spending most of their PC time there, because everywhere in knittingwebland is still so quiet. I want to see what`s going on in there!
Yup, now it`s the end of summer and the kids are back at school, my thoughts are turning back to woolly things again. Socks, mostly. What is it about knitting socks? I love them...cheap (compared to a sweater), easy to carry around, don`t have to worry about the FO making you look fat and even quite quick to knit. (For most folk...) If I had picture capability I would show you the sock I`m currently knitting...just plain vanilla pattern, but in a gorgeous Lorna`s Laces SS colour called Purple Iris. Nice sock. And I`ve been buying sock wool like there`s no tomorrow...
So, given that I have a couple of years worth of sock knitting materials now stashed, I decided to set myself a little challenge. One pair of socks per month. Pathetically easy? Not for me...I need motivation. It`s a fact that I managedto knit myOlympic Jaywalkers in two weeks, after all. (I knit three, almost, what with all the frogging of mistakes! So plain, or simple lace/rib socks, should be do-able in a month, no?
So I`ll finish the Purple Iris socks by the end of the month (I`m on the heel of No2) and then choose something suitably Septemberish to do next. Any suggestions?
