Previously on “Bored Little Piggy”…
Lol. Sorry. I just watched too many NCIS episodes, I started imagining Gibbs doing an intro for my blog. It is not related to the theme of today’s post, but I really… really want to say it out loud: “I really want Ziva back. Please?”
Right. My WIP.
Apparently knitting a pair of socks is not as difficult as I thought it would be — as long as I didn’t force myself to keep knitting (one more row) after midnight. The dreaded heel flap and gusset were not as scary as I thought it could be. In fact, it was done very smoothly, without confusion whatsoever. I give it to the pattern — the instruction was clear and easy to understand.
The part that I consider the most difficult in this project is the finishing bit. Grafting. What the hell is grafting — okay, I could just look up the dictionary, but that’s not the point. Why don’t they just tell me to sew them together instead of giving me so much technical instruction like that? However… I managed to do it (barely).
They look alright, aren’t they?
Problem is, they are too big for me. I am not sure whether it was because I measured my feet wrong, or because my gauge was off. Either or, the socks are not belong to my husband whose feet fit the socks better.
Now that I have made my first socks project, I started to understand why for some people this project is so addictive. I have to say, that socks, unlike hat has a certain level of challenge. And unlike jumper, it is relatively quicker to finish. I said relatively, because I am only doing a very simple – basic socks pattern.
Hm… what am I going to do next?
