Socking news!

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?

    Determination! Well done. At least if they’re wool, when you get sick of them you can felt them and sell them as brooches!
