My love of knitting socks continues. And I have a good pattern down, I think, where I alternate other projects with socks…so I don’t become overly obsessed with them. Because that would never happen to an OCD person like myself!
I cannot believe, with these Sesame Socks, I’ve knitted eight pairs of socks! And I have no less satisfaction now than when I started! With so many yarns to knit, it’s impossible to get bored! Sock knitting truly is the best knitting!
Also, I’m wearing my handknit socks more and more. I’ve learned that I really like the short socks – Jimmies! – for summer so I need to knit more of those. The Texas heat is always a challenge but my feet stay relatively cool in the shortie socks. Honestly, I don’t know how anyone can ever wear super high socks. I get too easily overheated!
Since these socks My heels are getting so much better. I really tried to pick up stitches in a cleaner way and it worked! I’ve re-read Charlene Schurch’s intro that is loaded with tips and techniques. And I try to remember to do them all….but rarely succeed. One day, I’ll remember all the tips!
