It's Sock Show time! Wednesday, November 2 - and I can't wait. This combines two of my favorite things about knitting - socks, and show 'n' tell. I took my first knitting class a long time ago, and we had to knit a sweater or a vest. And while I loved the process of knitting, the project left me uninterested. And I almost dropped it. But then - the sky opened a beam of sun hit me and said, "Take this sock class with me - it'll be fun!" (Ok, actually it was my friend Dina.) Suddenly, I was inspired, and I've been knitting socks ever since.
I do other things, too, of course, but I always have at least one sock on needles. (Let's leave it at "at least one" for now, ok? No need to count....) I find them the perfect portable project, except for a few parts that need extra attention. They can fit in your purse (I don't think I'm the only one that shops for a new purse with a ball of yarn to be sure it fits, am I?), and because they are not a super quick project, they're good for times when you'll have a lot of time, but not a lot of room. You know, like when your husband wants to go to the big Train Show in Puyallup, and trains only hold a bit of charm for you, but you might be there all day? Socks are great.
Bring your socks! Show them off! You CAN wear them, too, of course.....but I've seen that floor, and really, it's easier to see them up close if they're just on your hands. And we want to see them up close! I'm finishing up a new pair for my husband that I'm especially pleased with - Goldfish Socks. Can't wait to show them to you!
