Ever since I started knitting it has been my desire to knit socks. I can't think of anything I want to knit more. Yet I hesitate. I drag my feet. I avoid my DPN's like the plague. Then I decided I had to come to terms with the multitude of needles, and GET ON WITH IT! Sure, I had some laddering, and maybe I poked myself with a needle or two, but still, I persevered.
I present a pair of leg warmers I made for my daughter. They are the biggest thing I've ever made on DPN's, previously I only ever used them to finish off hats from circular needles. These were fun, and you might recognize that yarn from my Sunshine Baby Hat from last week.
A complaint I have is the yarn I used is pretty cheap (Knit Whizz) and it had several knots I had to cut out on the second ball, which is why the purple and yellow pattern aren't the same for each legging. Not a major thing by any stretch of the imagination, since they were just for fun anyway.
Now, if you are wondering to yourself, yes, I have started a sock! I am using Silver Sock Class and giving it a go. With any luck I might, just might have a sock to share next Friday (don't hold your breath). If anyone knows of a really easy sock pattern that would like to share, I would appreciate it!
On a happy note, I was late posting this morning, and my Mum-in-law came round to give me the cardigan she was knitting for me. Here are some pictures showing it off--without my head, of course. Sigh. I have issues with the self-timer function.
