I generally don't wear socks, or buy them at those streetfairs for $1. But again something you stumble upon as you delve deeper and deeper into this underworld of knitting - sock knitting. So I started a pair (since I'm waiting on yarn for the Swing Jacket) for my boyfriend. My very first pair of socks. I'm using a pattern out of Vogue Knitting's Fall 06 issue - the most masculine one I could find - and am only going to be using this nice olive/brown color as opposed to three different colors. So far so good - not saying much as you can see.
Now that I'm looking over the pattern again do I notice the "for advanced knitters" symbol. Hm.
I'll keep you posted on its... their progress. Damn - I have to do two of these.
P.S. - the background is wrapping I bought to wrap the BSJ in to send off - yay!
