Ha! I'm just doin' the little I Told You So dance over here. But tell me the important stuff: which yarn, which pattern?
I admit shamelessly. Part of my reticence was a fear of wasting a shitton of time and sock yarn killing myself on tiny needles only to get to the heel and discover I am a total fucking clum.So I took a look at the toddler sock pattern on the Cherry Tree Hill site, modified it for some leftover worsted weight I had, and banged it out through the heel shenanigans to prove to myself I could do it.Now I actually have to, you know, make socks. As opposed to one, lone little toddler....bootie....thing.
Heh. I was shocked at how easy the heel was on my first sock (I say that like I'm not right now only about to turn the heel on my fifth ever). I actually found getting started and all the goddamn ribbing at the beginning the hardest part, by far.I totally empathize on why you had teh sock fear; that's a big stitch-count commitment for something you might just totally jack up, y'know? I am surprised at how fast the knitting on the teeny-tiny needles goes after a while, though. Once I hit the right rhythm, I just fly.I find my desire to actually wear the socks, at this point, puts off the dread SSS.
a bunch of jo sharp kid silk is on its way to me at 40% off, for the socks in the jo sharp 2 (home) pattern book.debbie bliss pure cashmere aran. YOU BITCH.
