It is years since I have knitted anything (probably to do with having kids, working, and maintaining a house and garden!!), but have been craving a pair of warm hand knitted socks for the very cold evenings we have been experiencing.
To my horror I discovered that most sock patterns require 4 needles to be in use at the one time - an idea that was too overwhelming. After a 'google search' this morning I found a pattern that requires a pair of round needles, so I am going to attempt those.
My sister and I took a trip to 'Spotlight' this morning and purchased some yarn and needles.
While I was there I got all excited and decided to knit a scarf too as I found this exquisite coloured and textured yarn. I thought I would use it, and any leftover sock yarn, to knit a striped scarf.
I am calling it yarn because it is not actually wool. I find pure wool itches, so these are blends that feel really soft.
