Despite the nasal congestion I have managed to finish my first sock. There was a little happy dance, somewhat muted by the realisation that I need to knit another and it needs to match.
This specially dyed yarn which creates patterns and stripes with no effort on the part of the knitter is a wonder but also a worry. Will I be able to find the identical spot in the remaining yarn where I can start sock number two and be assured that when I reach the toe these socks will look like identical rather than fraternal twins? Let's hope so.
And don't worry, I am not suffering from cold toes while I am knitting these. I already have four pairs knitted by the HD3QBEM!
I work for a large Government Department. Outside work I enjoy embroidery and stitch mainly traditional pieces of counted work always in Linen and generally with DMC or silks. My other love is reading and I visit the local library nearly every week. My elderly mother lives with me. She is increasingly deaf and quite blind and in this blog is known affectionately as the DBEM.
