The Knitted Sock

So I took up knitting awhile back, and I've really enjoyed it! It's very portable and usually pretty easy to stop when needed. The downside is getting a good collection of needles for all the different projects I'd like to do! When I started, I thought knitting socks would be a very economical thing to do. Cool, and economical. Well, there's nothing much economical about it. It would cost about $6 per pair, plus the hours and hours of labor. However, when you're finished, you have a great pair of wool socks that you can say you made yourself! So...not economical, but still cool in my book.

Did I mention I've only made it through my first sock?


  1. I love it! It looks like a professional sock! Now to have a partner...

  2. Well, I do like the one sock... there's the cool factor. I guess making it a pair would be the practical, if not economical, thing to do, though.

  3. Wow, Lydia! That sock looks great...good work!

  4. You know, I read that if you don't post in over three months, they kill your blog.

    (Not really, but post something, will ya?)
