Warm Socks for Simon

The time had come! I don’t know how many years it had been but I had wanted to knit a pair of socks for as long as I can remember. And now the time had finally come! I was excited and scared.

Cuff done, sock to go!

Scared for a good reason- Learning the strange language of knitting instructions proved to be rather challenging. Luckily with the help of the internet and my trusty knitting app I just bought for my phone I was able to decode the encrypted instructions. Knitting is apparently a very secret society!

Approaching the Heel

Shaping the heel was really something. I had always wondered how that was done and here I was about to do it: “SlP.P12.P2tog.P1.Turn.Sl1P.k3.Sl1.K1.psso.K1. Turn…”and so on! Woah, I did it!!! I was elated. I raced to the end of the first sock and started the second sock. By then this secret society stuff had nothing on me; I was a pro. WHO WANTS SOCKS???
