Today I had plans to post a fabulously fun and colourful tutorial, but then when I had finished making that which I was going to share, I realised I had made it all wrong and it was unpostable.
I became irrationally upset.
So instead of a tutorial for a fun new thing, here is a picture of my latest pair of socks… I’m calling them my “second” pair of socks, because the Mad Hatter socks which were my real second pair of socks were such a spectacular failure, that I have permanantly erased them from my memory. So, meet my second pair of socks. The toe is nearly perfect on that first one, I just need to start decreasing at the centre crease on my big toe and I’ll have it sussed!
Being that every single pair of hand knitted socks I own are made from Opal (thanks to Mum and her opal addiction) I never saw myself knitting Opal socks, but I really liked this colourway, so I decided to have a go and it turns out I love it.
I love the way I can measure how much I have knitted at each sitting by the stripes.
And now that I’m on my second sock, I love how I can tell by the stripes where to start turning the heel instead of measuring it.
I’ll have another go with this tutorial! I will not be defeated! And ooooh I am barely managing to contain my excitement about a parcel that is on its way to my place…. can’t wait to show you!
Wishing you a beautiful day, and thank you so much for stopping by!
