A New Direction

There comes a point in a knitter’s life that one must move beyond scarves and hats. I decided that the next reasonable step — one which would likely result in a completed project — is to knit socks. Claire and I went to our local yarn store today, and I acquired the needles and yarn. I’ve never knit on anything so thin (size 1.5, which is 2.5 millimeters thick). They’re like toothpicks. Claire really enjoyed the store; we’re able to stay increasingly longer periods (almost an hour yesterday) as she learns not to pull all the yarn off the shelves.

    Hooray to socks!! Watch out, though. They’re addicting!

    I’m impressed! I’m still stuck on scarves. I’ll be very interested in hearing how the socks go. Have fun.

    It took me awhile to dare to knit socks. I’m not an expert, but I’ve learned that it’s do-able, and the DPNs aren’t so hard to work with after all.

    Try the 2-circ method if the DPNs get to squiggly — I’m going to try the Magic Loop one of these days.

    Good luck!
