I'm really enjoying my adventures in The Land of Sock-Knitting. I'm a long way from flawless double-moss stitch and perfect tension ....and we won't mention my kitchener stitch.... but I love working within a new form, learning new things. I love that I can feel my brain sparking up new connections as my knitting repertoire expands. But mostly, I think I'm in love with making fabric from yarn.... and I love that sock fabric takes shape pretty quickly, especially when the socks are for a small girl. Of course, I should be doing something about meeting a looming magazine deadline, but after a couple of frustrating sewing days, I'm in need of a bit of stitch-by-stitch meditation and therapy.
The satisfaction of seeing something coming together (instead of seeing something being unpicked more than it's sewed and having to photograph every step 65 times from each angle...and then having to unpick again.... and re-shoot....) is where's it's at, man.
