Right, I am laying down my challenge to myself and publicly declaring the first step in my attempt at sock making, I have ordered yarn…although mine is actually blue and if you click on the ball of wool you will see what it is and where it is from! Schoeller & Stahl Sock Yarn (sport & strumpfgarn)in marine colourway
I have also ordered these gorgeous Knit Pro dpns
and will be following Fiona’s basic sock pattern from the Summer 2013 Issue of Sheepish online magazine over at A Little Bit Sheepish. Click on the pic below to see the whole thing- full of tips and some lovely patterns. Well worth a look.
So that’s it, I will keep you updated on progress, slow as I fear it will be, but I am quite excited at the prospect of being able to wear my very own socks!
