I have never knitted a pair of socks. Please don't think any less of me, it's just something I've never really wanted to do. However, since my entry into blogland, I have visited so many places where socks are a staple, and they are beautiful. I think I just never realised how lovely socks could be.
Weeks ago, with this in mind, I ordered a sock knitting book from Amazon. They kept emailing me with delays and delays and I was beginning to think it was a sign that I was just never to become a knitter of socks. In the meantime, I joined a yarn swap and oredered some yarn for my pal and also some socky yarn in case I ever DID become a sock knitter. Look what came this morning at the same time!!! It's surely a sign that I am to become a GREAT SOCK KNITTER!!
I can't show you what else came or Sherri won't have a surprise when her parcel arrives, but here is some of it..
All I can say is, handknittedsockpeople must have tiny feet, because I am almost the man's size in this book, and I haven't got extraordinarily large feet, size 41. Is that big? I'm trying not to get a complex about it, but my choice in this book is a bit limited and I have narrowed it down to 2,
I just can't decide.
I do love the yarn though, it's Koigu and I've always thought sock yarn quite scratchy, but this is beautifully soft. I love it!
Any advice on my dilemma gratefully received!
