Sock Knitting!!!

Ahh, I have finally given in and am now a true knitting geek, I knit socks (bwa haa haa haa).  But really, who could resist?  Look at the variety of scrummy wool that is available, and the equally scrummy patterns and combine that with my obsession with miniatures (of the dollshouse kind, not that I have time to make any now that I have two little ‘helpers’), and it is hardly surprising that I am travelling down this slippery slope to ‘knitting nerd’.  Come and join me!!!!

This is the wee precious that I will attempt to knit………….

I have a ball of  Opal sock yarn, and am going to be borrowing the lovely Sheryl’s dpns tomorrow at knitting night.  I’m very excited really, I feel like a child with a 50c mixture!!  Watch this space, progress piccies will be appearing (don’t hold your breath though, I am SOCK KNITTING, it will be a slooooooooww process).

    • It’s probably a blessing is disguise Sheryl! I’m trying magic loop which should be easier and probably a lot quicker 🙂 (And it will save me oogling over the wood dpn set from VP, tee hee).
