Magic Moment

Dear World,

I MADE A SOCK!

Thanks to my sock model, who put up with my late night madness

Thanks to my sock model, who put up with my late night sock euphoria and modelling requests

A whole one. From beginning to end. In 4 ply yarn. On tiny needles.

And it looks like a sock.

And better still, it made it to Tom Ravenscroft’s Vibe Report.

I would just like to say that Kitchener stitch is, in my considered mathematical opinion, magic.

Thank you Fiona for your clear instructions. I had no idea what I was doing and why at times, but I kept the faith and followed the next step and it has worked.

This week has been pretty rubbish at times, but right now I’m absolutely stoked.

Did I mention I knitted a sock?

  1. Congratulations! Right now I’m sitting here knitting my first sock. Hope my results are as good as yours.

  2. I’ve been knitting in the car mostly, so no googling, just a couple of patterns, but all going well still 🙂
