That looks surprisingly like a pair of socks, doesn't it?
And yes, I made them.
Will wonders never cease?
AND, would you believe I've cast on for the beginnings of another pair already? I have enough of this yarn to make three pairs - so the three males in my family will be getting a gift from me at some point. There might just be some more yarn in my stash that's suitable for the girls too. So - there's more socks in my future!
These are knitted using Kroy Sock Yarn - toe up. I'm not thrilled with the toes (despite three attempts at different methods) and have changed it for the next pair. I don't care for pointy toes, despite the fact that they look okay when worn. The heels were another three or four attempts to get it right, and they still may change somewhat. Hmmm.....does this mean I'm writing my own pattern?
Today the quote is from Franklin Roosevelt...."It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something"
