Somehow I am not expecting great things, but I have taken the plunge and followed fellow bloggers such as Cornflower into the exciting sock knitting sphere.
I've been unwell recently - for some reason I want to say out of sorts, under the weather, under par, a bit blue, perhaps because they all sound like my mum talking and that's a strange kind of comfort - so I wanted something new to do that wouldn't be physically taxing. So far, apart from the inevitable teenage sniggers, it's been good. Better than good. I went to fashion college, I LIKE making things with my hands. What I forget sometimes is how much I NEED to do it. It's as if my hands remember how to do things all on their own, and that's amazingly reassuring. Like growing vegetables and making soup.
Anyway, I will keep you posted with the progress of the socks.
