Have been looking forward to 1 October, planning planning planning, thinking thinking thinking.
Got my sock yarn (enough for 36 pairs of socks. Or maybe 37 pairs, I can’t remember now…)
Picked my first yarn (The Knittery Merino Cashmere sock yarn, in “Cherries”).Wound it into a ball (or cherrycake). And cast on! Yippee
So I am love love loving knitting with this yarn – the colour is so fabulous and watching it change from rich red to burgundy to brown and back again is giving me an enormous amount of pleasure (more pleasure any non-knitter could imagine you could get from yarn, I’d say!). Although given my often expressed dislike for moss/seed stitch, I’m not sure why I thought it would be a good idea to knit a whole sock (pretty much) in 1×1 rib, which is, you know, just even moss stitch. Can you tell the pattern? (there’s a pretty strong hint in the photo!!)
PS – SHOESday tomorrow (since it will still be SHOESday in some parts of the world!)
