It’s a Slipper Sock, Ok??

sock in progress

So, the other night, the Yarn Harlot and I shared a laugh over the size of my elephant sock. Well, what if it’s just a big, roomy, slouchy, slipper sock? I’m torn between just plodding forward and ripping out and starting over. Socks in worsted weight seem silly to me anyway, but I do have good friends that make them and say they’re cozy and good on a cold winter’s day. So, maybe I will keep going. I don’t know… Am I nuts?

The Hunt is Over

Just gotta say I’ve been looking for this book for a LONG time. It doesn’t show up on eBay at a price I was willing to pay very often, and I got lucky a few weeks ago. But alas, just like all of my other books, I am wondering if I am going to ever actually make anything out of this book, or if I will only use it to understand the techniques, and do my own thing. I’m such a loose knitter, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to do someone else’s charted design on something that’s actually supposed to fit. Oh well, mittens from this book are a bit of a ways off for me, but I am so glad that I found it.

Ciao for now! ER is back, so I’m outta here.

    I’m just like that with knitting books. I’ve gotten better, and have started checking books out from the library to see what I’ll like, then going to buy it when I’m ready to knit from it. That said, I just bought 4 books from KP yesterday, and one at B&N today. 🙂

    No, you are definitely *not* nuts! I have a pair of tweedy worsted weight socks my Mom knit me and I love them!
