My First Socks
I haven't been posting much lately, but I have been knitting and watching lots of tv.
I have finally finished my second sock, so I now have a pair that I can wear! OK, so they're acrylic, make my feet sweat and they don't look very good, but I made them and I'm going to wear them. As long as they don't fall apart, I consider them a success.
It's funny - the second sock actually looks worse than the first sock. I assumed that I would get better with experience and the second sock would be much better than the first - NO. I guess I was feeling cocky about my knitting skillz and didn't pay enough attention to what I was doing. Most of the sock is fine, the heel and the toe are the big problems. I'm still not quite getting my Kitchener right. So for my next pair, I going to try short rows and the third pair may be of the toe-up variety if I can't figure out the K satisfactorily.
I promise I'll try to most more often.
