Knitting Socks

Knitting socks is - to me - a lovely, mindless way to spend an evening in front of the telly. I don't really have any quilty handwork, and I'm too, TOO fidgetty to just sit there. If I do, I end up snacking a lot, and end up feeling bloated, fat and uncomfortable.
SO, knitting socks it is.

But really ... knitting the same type of sock all the time tends to be boring, SO when looking through the summer issue of knitty, I found this pattern, and since I already had this yarn (and no, you really, really don't want to browse that shop ... it will probably be very, very expensive to do so), and the double-pointed needles, I started.

Now, some of you who read this blog probably already know, that English is not my first language, but I usually have no trouble with it, so I forged ahead.

I have not unpicked this much in the longest time !

Oh, well. BUT, sock # 1 is now finished - as can be seen from the picture - and so far, sock # 2 is much smoother sailing.

... but let me tell you, taking a picture of a sock on ones own foot is not quite as easy as might be imagined. Oh, well. It looks as it looks :-) and I like the way it looks, actually.

It is true that you can spend alot of money on sock supplies. I am guilty as charged. But they do look so pretty:0 I need to catch up my knitting with my stashing!
Nice work on the sock.

Great sock, Tilde! I like the way you've brought the twisted-travelling stitch down over the heel flap. Nifty idea. I am a sock fan, too, so I understand the addiction! lol
I have been enjoying the Sampler blocks you are making and hope to soon join in making them too. Inklingo is great!
