Today the mail carrier delivered "The Knitter's Book of Socks," by Clara Parkes, to my door. This is all part of my determination to learn to like knitting socks.
I have knit one sock in my lifetime. That's not one pair of socks, it's one sock.
Don't get me wrong, I like the sock, it just was a challenge to knit it. It probably was the DPN thing that made me a victim of one sock-itis, which I understand is only just shy of epidemic proportion in the knitting world. I know that you can knit socks with a circular needle, and even knit two socks at once on two circular needles. I'm willing to give both of them a try, and even give the DPN thing another try. As I said, I'm determined. I WILL learn to like knitting socks.
I like the idea of knitting socks, I like the fun and funky, handknit socks that I see. I love self-striped socks, I like cabled socks. I CAN learn to like knitting them, can't I???
