While I haven’t been plying a sewing needle terribly much of late, I have been wielding needles of a different kind, four in fact, and have
finally finished the socks for MyDearFIL.
Can anyone explain why it took me a year to knit one sock and a week to knit its mate?? I think I was a little afraid of the “foot” part; please note the turned heels and the grafted toes (proudly puffed out chest moment!).
The Golfer delivered the socks earlier this week (I’m up with Ma Kettle) and MyDearFIL was delighted. (My mother-in-law used to knit him socks all the time and he hasn’t had any since she died……and I’ve been a bit slow off the mark making up the shortfall!!). There are plans to knit him more, and I have some yarn to make some for myself too. Now that a pair is completed, they really aren’t that hard to do, and I actually quite enjoyed knitting the second sock.
So, with that UFO done, it’s time to start on Ma Kettle’s jumper.
