Sock Knitting Adventure

Watch me now try and justify the fact that I have cast on my first sock today (very exciting) and have not yet finished my final Christmas project…

It’s not as bad as it sounds, honestly. Today I spent the day with a dear knitter friend, Kate, and we decided it was time to try a sock. So armed with pointy sticks and some excellent You Tube videos, we managed a toe each!

My toe:

We were extremely excited about this progress.

The problem is now that I need to finish my final Christmas knitting project tonight but all I want to do is knit my sock!  I am going to be good though – I really only have another inch to put on the scarf, and then it will be cast off.  So tonight is the night – I will finish Cerus scarf (despite claiming on Twitter a few nights back that I was going to stay up knitting it all night if I had too…)  Then I can knit socks to my heart’s content.   Watch this space for photographic evidence.

    They look great Martine, love the yarn! I’ve not tried toe up socks before, I’m intrigued how it works 🙂
