Sock Update

I was able to make great progress on my sock last week by knitting during lunches and Friday and Saturday nights. I was concerned that the opening wasn't going to be big enough, but once I had a couple of inches done, I was able to use a sock that I currently wear as a comparison and the size is just about the same. I used the sock to get an idea of how long to make the leg, too.

The second sock class was supposed to be last night, but I got a call on Sunday that due to illness the class would be postponed. So I am ready for the next class next week where we will learn to turn the heel. :)

I don't understand how multi colored yarn comes out in stripes. Is it colored that way when it is manufactured or do you do something to make it happen?

I was going to knit a pair of socks a few years ago now, uh, I am so glad I didn't!!! I am very bad at loving an idea, and then, not making the thing!! And, I don't wear socks as a rule, so what was a I thinking!!! But. I love looking at them!! And yours is looking really good!!!! One day, I might pull out my knitting needles and make a pair anyway!!!! Hey - good Christmas gift!!! uh oh..........!!!!

Looking good Jill. That yarn is knitting up so pretty, I bet you are looking forward to getting this one done, and start on the second sock so you can enjoy them on your feet. I love wearing handknit socks. The other night I was knitting at guild meeting and someone asked me why I was knitting a sock when they are so cheap to buy! I told her that it's because they are so comfortable! Should have asked her why she makes quilts when blankets are so inexpensive!!! It's all about the need to create.
