Sock it to me

I’ve been thinking about making socks and at work knitting today, my co-worker got fed up with her sock yarn and needles and gave them to me.

The yarn is super cute, I think it is Trekking in the shade pictured. I am grateful because it’s like a ready-made sock kit, free! She is threatening to take the socks once I knit them…but that’s cool, since I mainly want to learn how to knit a sock.

And my other co-worker has this book shaped like a sock, and I might try to make a sock from that.

    I’m trying to learn socks too (my obsession: those cute pedi-socks a la your friend Ruthie). But due to my wool allergy and obsession with supernatural softness, I’m using microfiber, which is a total pain, especially on DPNs. I made one lone fingerless glove with it just fine, but for some reason, I am having a horrible time with the socks. I think I’m going to try with some slipperier needles though—the combo of slightly raspy clovers and no-stretch-whatsoever microfiber is no fun. Slippery DPNs kind of scare me, though.

    oooh – lovely colour! I’ve got two halfs of a sock made & can’t face turning the heel – one day I will!
