Vera is a contributor to this stitching blog here.
Vera is new to sock knitting and I thought it would be nice if any of you could offer up some good resources for newbie sock knitters, I think it might be interesting and helpful to bunch of us.
A lot of you continue to provide me with great helpful hints. Things like, avoiding ladders with dpns or maybe a magic loop sock knit tutorial video you like? I think I am seriously going to have to try this technique. Jesse recommended the two at a time sock knitting book. It keeps me company at the side of my bed, but I still haven't committed to even the top/cuff down version (I think Jesse is a toe-up knitter.) Maybe my next holiday that involves less running around ...
I liked having a seasonal theme for this giveaway. I like seasonal themes in general, so maybe we'll have to have a summer giveaway as well :)
Tell me, if you were going to add something to your crafting kit and kaboodle, what would it be?
Personally, I have a bunch of wonderful mementos from my trip to London and Paris I'm seriously considering picking up a basic scrapbook. BASIC people, nothing fancy -- just a centralized place to glue things in. I always have room for sock yarn, despite what The Manfriend and The Kid say.
But the truth is I don't need much of anything. (do not tell the family I said that) What I actually need is to organize my things and my life ...ah an ongoing battle ... I mean journey...
Maybe just organize my needles? Kathy B. just mentioned she is using nail polish to distinguish and group her dpns and what not. BRILLIANT. Why have I not done this sooner.
Tomorrow WIP! Show or tell us what ya' got!
