Socks Appeal

I love knitting socks.  I love the way you take what is basically a ball of string and make something that keeps your feet warm.

Socks don't care what your weight is.  They don't care if you put on a few pounds.  They'll fit you anyway.

Starting a sock begins the challenge.  I use double pointed needles, so I have to make sure that my cast on stitches don't twist when I join them in the circle.  And in the first few rounds the needles don't really co-operate...they want to go their own ways!

But after a few rounds, the needles settle down. And the knitting becomes contemplative.

Katie is overseeing the production!
