Knitting For Friends

Misnomer Socks

Today's little bit of happy is knitting. Of COURSE knitting makes me happy! It's my #1 most enjoyable hobby of all time (I've now been knitting longer then anything else! Except maybe drawing...)
But more then knitting itself, I love knitting for my friends. These are bound for a friend of mine overseas; it's a bit intimidating knitting a pair of socks when the recipient's feet is not around to check measurements on...
This is also my first time knitting a sock from the toe up! So far I'm enjoying it; I'm a bit dubious about the heel coming up though...

Another small happy is for my local libraries! I was able to track down not only a copy of the next Dark Tower Series books, but the one that follows after it as well! I'm all set for reading material for another couple of weeks!

So pretty!
I find socks intimidating! AND you're doing some amazing cables? You're a knitting prodigy. :D The whole picking up stitches with knitting thing freaks me out so shaping the socks would be impossible for me. I can do it with crochet since I just generally find crochet more intuitive (and harder to hopeless biff up) but I guess crochet socks aren't too comfy.

And HOORAY for finding the next DT books.
Let me know what you think!

Re: So pretty!
Hehehe, socks really shouldn't be that intimidating; and cables are easy-peasy! Trust me!
That's so funny you think that way; I am SO GOOD at biffing up crochet; all of my attempts to try it so far have ended in knotty disaster!

This does remind me that I really should do some research into non-animalwool sock yarn, I have such a preference for beautiful wool yarns I can't think of any off the top of my head!
