Up until the bank holiday weekend, I was a virgin sock knitter. It was a project that I had never before attempted or felt like it was something I needed to do.
That is the case no longer. Spurred on by my fellow bloggers/knitters/obsessives I have begun this knitting milestone.
What finally forced me to start was a fellow knitter friend (check out her amazing etsy shop here) when she leant me this sock knitting book.
I’ve now ordered a copy for myself from amazon (as having a copy on hand is going to be very useful) and a couple of other ones as well.
It turns out that knitting socks is rather more as difficult than I thought.
I had to unravel. It ended up being about 2 sizes to big and apparently I was trying to be too clever trying to jump straight in with circular needles. Bad idea.
With the help of these other books I hope the method (using new techniques) will start to become clear!!
But I think the socks will have to wait. I am currently still camping on a mattress in my lounge, work is busy and decorating is starting to progress to downstairs now as well. So literally around my ears.
On an exciting note I have moved my magnets over and the kitchen is starting to look pretty!
I finally unpacked the scrabble magnets I got from waterstones! Here is a preview before they just become a way to spell rude words on the side of the fridge.
If you want to get yourself some to write rude words on your fridge (I admit to nothing) here’s the link to them on Amazon.
So what choas has been happening with you this week?
All the best and I hope your week is going well 🙂
