Since everyone else is knitting socks, I decided I would have to have a go too :o). Fortunately, unlike quilting, you can get going pretty cheaply, I bought a couple of balls of wool and some needles and got a free pattern, so I was all set to go. I've knitted one sock, OH is very chuffed with it, but says that his other foot is cold LOL! I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly the first one was finished, and amazed at the kitchener garter stitch used to finish the toe. Quite magic! Sock No 2 is about 2" long, I've committed to finishing it by the weekend, so I'd better hope there's some good telly this week. I'll post a better picture once the pair is complete. The wool is actually shades of blue, not grey.
