I spent most of the post-Christmas doldrums knitting socks. Sadly, not very many. My first effort was stymied by my inability to understand the instructions. My second effort (using a knitting board for the first time) is almost complete. I'm about two hours from a completed pair of socks. They are soft and warm and make my feet look very, very long. Here's one and a half socks, and the knitting tool:
Kyle Bogartman, who sells renaissance outfits and sews for an Austin designer Jennifer Ayers and used plastic pipe with connectors for my hoops. It's fairly easy to take apart for washing. Anyhow, after I put in my first channel, I had to put in a hoop to see how it looked. It looked like a jellyfish.
It really seems too big, but I will be patient and wait until it's done before I change it.
