I think I have been knitting as long as I have been blogging. I know I only started this one a few months ago, but I have had so many blogs in the past that I did not maintain. If my calculation is correct — which usually is, I have been knitting (and blogging) for almost 12 years. I said almost, because I cannot remember the exact date when I went to the knitting class, and signed up for the course.
However, I remembered my first ever project (finished project that is). It was a hat. Blue hat, with “Sirdar Denim DK”, for one of my best friend who was like a brother to me. He lived in the Netherlands now, and I haven’t seen him for ages — but we are not going to talk about him or the Netherlands. Maybe later… but not now.
For my 12 years of knitting experience, there are so many projects I deliberately avoid. Not because I don’t want to do it, but because I always feel that I don’t have enough skill to do it. And one of them is SOCKS.
I have seen so many knitters/bloggers posted their socks online, and I was so incredibly jealous of their magnificent skills. So I decided to break out from my comfort zone, go to ravelry and find an easy (very basic) sock pattern. And I found THIS.
It seems easy enough.
Most of the time it is the repetition of ribbing, and it will take a while. So I am going to come back to you after I go far enough to post more read-worthy entry. Okay?
Anyway, wish me luck for this project. I know the biggest problem that will await me in this particular project is the heelflap and the gusset. I don’t even know what gusset is — as English is not my first language, but I know roughly where it is.
So, see you soon.
