So I’ve just finished knitting the first of L’s Birthday socks (is it just me or are toe decreases one of the knitting black holes…). It looks rather good, actually (yeah). I’ll do the duplicate stitching later today (which is what they grey bits of yarn are helping to mark (they indicate the centre of the heel flap and of the foot).
And in really exciting sock news – LOOK AT THIS!! Cookie A has a sock book coming out called Sock Innovation! It has a release date of April 2009 and is being published by Interweave Press. I am very excited (though I tend more towards hording her patterns than knitting them…). So pre-order (which I’ll probably do soon) and tell your friends.
In other sock related news…
