Six years ago I was so mesmerised by the beautiful sock wool for sale at Sydney’s annual quilt show.
Of course I bought enough wool to knit 5 pairs, didn’t I? Thought they would be easy….another big mistake!
Not one to be deterred, over time, I got out the knitting needles and pattern book and grimaced my way with each stitch. In fact I became very proficient, at undoing my knitting. Also very proficient at watching you-tube knitting tips, which indeed saved what was left of my sanity.
I am so pleased to announce that tonight I finished my FOURTH pair. Hooray. (A friend knitted the 5th pair). Here’s a photo of three pairs (the other pair us in the wash).
Who wants my sock knitting needles?
