I am making my first ever pair of socks. First. Ever.
I got some very gorgeous cashmere from eBay a few weeks ago. It is a 4ply 100% cashmere with no label or other information about it. As soon as I touched it, I fell in love, but decided, unselfishly, that it had to be used on something just for me since, with no label, I couldn’t design something with it due to the lack of information provided. See, unselfish to the core me.
So, since it’s a sock weight yarn, I decided to give some a try.
I’ve always been interested in making socks, since I started knitting again back in April 2011, but they always seemed daunting. After asking advice from my lovely group on Ravelry, I chose something that I didn’t think looked too taxing, worked with 4ply and the only pair of tiny dpn’s I have, 2.25mm.
Since I’ve got a solid coloured yarn, I figure these will be very much Jekyll, however, if they give me any trouble they will definitely become Hyde.
I’m also pretty worried about the second sock syndrome which I know for a fact I will get since the pictures you have seen took me a good 2 hours to knit up last night. Tiny needles and light weight yarn make Kelly a slow ass knitter!
Wish me luck! I will post my progress over the coming weeks/months. This may take some time!
