I love hand knit socks, but suffered terribly trying to get gauge when I first started knitting them. As a result I’ve shied away from patterned versions ever since. However, after advising someone to face their fear of failure I decided I should take my own advice and cast on.
The chosen pattern is Sunshine by cookie a from her Sock Innovation book.
So far things seem to be going to plan and it looks a lot better when I try it on. Unfortunately I’m lousy at photographing my own feet so I’ve been forced to substitute a febreeze can.
I’m currently working my way down the foot of the first sock but thought I’d share now rather than waiting till they’re finished.
Oh, and on a separate note I promised to report back on the Frixion pens I bought for marking fabric. So far I have been unable to work out how to rub or use friction to erase the pen lines on a fabric. They do however disappear easily with a bit of heat from an iron.
