Socks & Books

February 7th, 2008

Well not exactly as it says in the title as there’s still only one sock! I did some more work on my first sock yesterday at the Stitch N’ Bitch group I go to, I was up to the point where I was to start the heel flap and was very lost (as I’m not a very experienced knitter…. yet!) but Ann (our resident sock expert) helped me out and pointed me in the right direction, now it’s going fine (tho the sock in general could be neater in parts, but looking pretty good for a first go I think) and looks like it will continue until I get to the gusset when it’ll be time to call on the lovely Ann again :)

Today in my lunch break I decided to treat myself to a couple of craft-y books, so I bought one on how to make your own clothes and another one which has all sorts of various craft items/idea’s/patterns in it. The range of knitting books wasn’t very inspiring so I didn’t buy any of those. I was naughty tho and ordered a couple more books when I got home from work as Waterstones didn’t have the book I’d had my eye on on Amazon the night before. I’ll post pics of these once they arrive.

And so I’ll leave you with a picture of the sock so far and the 2 books I got.
