I chose this pretty pinkish lavender pure wool and settled on a simple pattern, just to give myself a chance to get back up to the speed I used to knit with. You won't believe me if I told you that I started this poor sock more than 10 times. I progressed as far as the middle of the heel and had to start again for various reasons. But finally I managed to finish that first sock and going to show it to you. While I was working on it, there were so many different thoughts running through my mind that I even decided to put them in a separate post that is coming soon.
This is the second pair of socks that is going to be lacy. I found the pattern in an old knitting magazine called Sandra and I love how it's turning out. This is as far as I have gotten by now.
We always knitted socks on five thin needles, but lately I have seen many people doing this on circular needles. I gave this approach a go too and I have to say, I found it very uncomfortable and tedious, so I switched back to my usual way. The only problem is that I used needles slightly too big in size for the first sock, but this is a story for my next post. Happy day! Larisa xox
