The History Of It All
Truth be told, my relationship with sock knitting has been a rocky one. In the beginning, I began the first of all socks that was to have been created by my own two hands; the yarn was blue, I remember.
My DPNs in hand, I knit with fuery and, after a time, I rendered a sock; not a bad one either.
Now came the time to begin the second, of what would be two entire socks, rendering a complete pair. For some reason, it struck me, and for the longest time I didn't have the sheer power of mind to begin another. So, there I was, left with one whole sock.
The years have passed, various projects, many scarves, and the pairs of incompleted baby socks have come and gone; and the one blue sock has journeyed off somewhere, perhaps in search of a purpose.
But today is a new day! A day in which I Heidi have actually finish, not one, but two completely knit socks!
The socks themselves, were knit by double pointed needle, four to be exact, sized: (1), and
one miniture crochet hook for picking up stitches.
The pattern itself, just your run-of-the-mill socky-sock pattern. It called for size two, but upon trial, I noticed the extremely loose stitches, and tightened the gauge accordingly.
The yarn was black as you can see, and self striping.
I also have some really amazingly cool sock yarn that I have in store for the next pair, and I desperately need to hunt down a pattern for.
Any suggestions as to patterns would be welcomed!
