I was lucky to receive the book "Super Socks" by Winwickmum over Christmas and the necessary tools to begin knitting socks.
I have tried different crochet patterns to make socks with not much success so I decided I needed to set myself the challenge of knitting instead. I had researched on the internet and came across "Winwickmum" and her sock adventures on her blog and decided that was the way to go! This resulted in a list for my hubby as a guide for xmas presents!
Since Christmas, after a couple of false starts, I have managed to make gradual progress with this and I am well on my well to finishing my first sock! Have a look at the photos below to see my progress...
I had got in a muddle with this starting point with the rib and had not realised I need to join so early but started again and soon had it sorted!
The book has been a great help and I am almost on to the toes now! I am so pleased with the result so far! I will post again soon to show off my first finished sock!
Bye for now
