... who said 'I can resist anything except temptation'? Well so it is with me. I fully intended knitting the blanket last night, seeing what squares were next on the list. But the pull of The Sock was just too much to resist. Forgive the rubbish blurry photo, but the light wasn't great and unlike many of you very clever people, I don't know how to improve it or even use Picassa - whatever that might be.
Anyway, here she is. I am totally, 100% in love with this sock. The yarn (Posh Yarn's Laura - 80% merino, 20% cashmere) is now my favourite yarn ever. So soft, so beautiful to knit with, quite, quite delicious!
Forgive me for not providing a link to this pattern though for all you brave souls wanting to join me - it's from Ravelry and is here . Please let me know if you're doing it.
I have also had requests for easy patterns, well, I'll try and oblige, but I'm really not too good at this. One person's easy may be one person's difficult and vice versa, so just bear with me.
You could always go over here and try the Pull Up Socks from Posh yarn (scroll down the page) I have a pair of these, and love them. They really weren't difficult.
There are some patterns that use 2 needles for those of you too scared of dpn's -here's one that looks pretty good - seams on the side so I think they'd be fairly comfy.
I could spend all day here hunting for sock patterns - there are thousands of them out there. Knitty has a load of them, as does Ravelry. But for now I need to go and knit my own sock. The pull of the computer is not as strong as the pull of the sock!
