Well, I finally did something new! I knitted a pair of socks out of soft acrylic yarn. The mistakes are there trust me. In fact, the first sock took twice as long as the second sock to make because I was learning, and that meant, I knitted, took it out, re knitted, etc., etc., until I got each part right.
What really thrilled me was that I didn't suffer from the dreaded SSS, "second sock syndrome". I guess all those years of mass producing anything I make, made doing a second one a breeze.
Who would like a pair of hand knitted socks for Christmas? Now is the time to let me know. P.S. If I make you a pair of socks, I have to measure your feet first, so that I can make them to fit.
