You'll never guess what I knitted......

Yes, I finally did it!!!!! Hooray, jumping about the room, screaming madly, very excited!!!!!
I can't believe I finally did it, and I'm not sure why I couldn't get it before.
I went to this shop at the weekend to get a Rowan pattern book I want. Well, it turns out that they don't sell Rowan, or Debbie Bliss (that's another story) but they do have an abundance of sock yarn and the lady who was in there showed me the pair she was knitting. It's a simple pattern that comes with the yarn and was written by the other lady who owns the shop (who wasn't there). Well, I don't know if it was my husband as he chose the yarn, the pattern, me touching her half finished sock, or Celia's markers (which came in very useful), BUT I started this sock on Saturday night whilst watching Apocalypto (now if you've seen that film, you'll know it's all subtitled..so knitting and knowing when to look up to read subtitles isn't easy, but I got the gist) and I finished it last night!!!

Here is a picture of it being modelled by it's intended recipient.

And again from another angle

Please do not think that that is my hairy leg.

Casting on for the second one today before I get the sickness I hear so much about......the dreaded SSS

YAY it looks great! Congrats! What's the name of the pattern?

Liz said...

Well, it's called Free simple sock pattern and gift pouch...hmmm, now that's ruined the whole impressiveness of it. :)

Cass said...

LOL no it hasn't! Any knitted sock is impressive to me. :)

j/k I totally agree with the comment you left in my blog. I sometimes hesitate to get too personal, for fear of being one of those bloggers who just spew their stuff, but i like to know about you too. :)
