Since deciding that I was going to spend some more time making things for the people that live in this house, and since I now have a husband, I thought what could be more wifely than to knit the man some socks? I haven't knitted socks before, and funnily there seems to be a couple of others out there who are knitting their first socks right now also.
I am using Regia Jacquard Color 4-ply sock yarn, colourway 5275 and King Cole Sox pattern. Ravelry link to this project here.
After a couple of false starts, and a bit of YouTube study to turn the heel, I was safely on my way. I think I am going to enjoy making socks again!
And, on Friday we said goodbye to nappies, so Mil has been pantless for a while. We had a great day on Friday, and a not so great day yesterday. But I guess the only thing to nail this is time. But seeing as we were housebound, and the sun was out I got to do a bit more socking...
... and managed to finish husband sock number one! Hurrah. I am very pleased, and love the yarn. I made only one small alteration to the pattern, using a different stitch for the heel. I thought socks would be a horror, but I found the whole process very manageable.
Hooray for knitting! I love knitting!
