Knitting Community

I took advantage of the Knit Picks sock yarn sale and brought a huge amount. I couldn't help myself. Socks have become my new favorite pasttime. There's always something new and interesting in making socks. I thought about designing my own patterns. I finished two pairs a few weeks ago and gave them to my eldest brother. He loved them! I made them out of merino wool so he can't wear them right now but he did want me make some out of cotton. I never did that before so it would be challenging. I updated my Raverly page. My username id gigiknit. I posted photos ans listed projects. I'm trying to learn colorwork, So I ordered the Meave hat and mittens set. I'll start out small. I hope the weather gets warmer and sunny soon. It's been raining so much here in NYC. It would be nice to sit in the park and knit. Can't wait for my sock yarn order!  Happy Knitting.

Aloha Yarn Basket! So glad you're enjoying sock knitting - as Peggy stated, it's addicting :) You should definitely think about designing your own patterns! I will tell you that is also addicting but very fulfulling when you see your pattern come to 'life', especially colorwork socks which are now MY obsession! LOL!
