hello! let me introduce you to the newest addition to my sock drawer! :) i love these socks so much! finishing them made me forget how i hated the yarn when i first started knitting. the colours are stunning and even prettier in real life. i'm definitely keeping my eye open for similar (and sturdier) yarns!
i'm trying to learn something new with each pair of socks i knit. in this pair i altered the heel flap, with two purl stitches at the beginning of every row, which makes it easier to count the rows and to pick up the stitches. i really like how it looks, too!
that's what so great about socks, once you understand the basics you can try new techniques and stitch patterns, which makes the whole process of knitting socks exciting and fun. :) and addictive!!
