You can teach an old knitter new tricks
This old knitter spent the summer knitting a shawl and feeling a bit out of sorts because the a4A summer campaign focused on socks, which I had always kind of meant to try but... I kept knitting other things instead, things for other people, but if felt strange to let this exciting campaign pass me by.
Until the end of August, when a knitting kindred spirit managed to read my mind and issued a (gentle) challenge. I decided it was time to see if I could still learn a new trick, and voila. Thanks to Charlene Schurch's excellent book "Sensational Knitted Socks", I managed to knit these 2 pair for the on-going sock collection. I may even cast on for a third one, before I forget my brand new skills.
