Knitting mistakes, and knitted socks.

Knitting socks is kind of addictive, and I just finished my second pair this year in beautiful King Cole zig zag 4 ply sock yarn (1250 Eton Mess)
I wish I could say that it was as easy as pie, but it wasn’t ! A friend had sent me several  yarns, and a pattern for lacy knitted socks. I eagerly started on the pattern without doing my home-work first, and only too late realized that the pattern was meant for a slightly different sized wool and needles. I am not a good enough knitter to adapt lace patterns, so I started again with a classic King Cole pattern.

The lacy socks are still on my to-do list, but before I start again I will make sure I have the right size of yarn.

Yikes ! See how wide my knitted lace socks would have been ? Almost wide enough for a sweater sleeve.
