After completing a few successful scarf and hat projects, I felt I was ready to embark on a new adventure. Conveniently, that very same week they announced this sock knit-along, which fulfilled my need to try something new.
As a yarn lover (new to knitting, veteran at crochet) I’ve learned the value of try, try again; which really means, try, drop some stitches, start over and try again. But what I love about this project is with each new cast-on I’ve felt the same giddiness about working on my first pair of socks.
Only a few weeks in to sock #1 and I have already learned some valuable lessons. I hope as a fellow yarn lover you remember the beginner years and laugh and learn along with me:
– When you drop three stitches and start knitting in the wrong direction in less than five minutes, put the project down and leave it for a bit
– Don’t wait until 20 rows in to ask whether you are doing things correctly, do it after a few rows.
– Learn to unknit (need I say more?)
Cheers to a sock-ing good time,
