Thank you all for your wonderful compliments on Grandma’s sock Número Uno! For those of you who missed it, the pattern is NOT my own; it is Child’s First Sock (how ironic) in Shell Pattern from Nancy Bush’s new book, Knitting Vintage Socks.
I fully intend to disclose to you how to pick up the stitches the pretty way, but don’t you think that instead of making a mock heel and showing you right now, I should just knit Calcentín Número Dos and take pictures when I’m at that point? Now THAT’s the motivation I need to immediately cast on for the second one!
I hope the pretty instructions will be here by Monday morning, but no promises – I’ve had a busy week and may use this weekend to take a nap or, you know, wash my hair for a change ;).
OH! And look at what I saw today in the Anthropologie catalog!
Wow! If that store (the one where all the jeans fit) is starting to sell a “learn to knit” kit, it MUST be cool! Since I actually hand over my money to them willingly on a very regular basis, I think I’m not allowed to comment on the kit price. But you go ahead and feel free to do so. Ahem.
