working on socks
I've been enjoying reading the blog posts. I'm not as experienced a knitter as most of you, but I'm getting fairly good at socks, since I make a lot for myself, and now my daughter-in-law likes hand-knitted socks. After finishing two pair for her (she likes knee-highs) for Christmas, I'm back to knitting for a4A. This is a picture of the first sock for a pair that I started Christmas Eve. I used two strands of the yarn, one from each ball. I discovered that each ball is wound backwards from the other. I started with green on each ball, but one winds next into lime, while the other winds into blue (does that make sense?). So the colors flow counterpoint to each other. They look a lot brighter than they do in this picture, though.
