If I had to name something that I want to learn more than anything else, it would be how to knit a sock. I’ve seen loads of tutorials on YouTube and other parts of the internet; everything from sock knitting with DPNs to the two toe-up on one circular method. Nothing seems to stick, unfortunately, so I’ve only made one successful pair of training socks. (And I’m using the term “successful” very loosely.)
My desire to knit socks came when I saw Erica Lueder’s beautiful Harry Potter-themed socks on Ravelry. I love Harry Potter (Mostly the books. Movies weren’t so great after the second one, to be honest…) so these socks quickly became my goal.
Every time I bring these patterns up to T, he tells me that he doesn’t see how you can make socks that represent a person. To that I say, sure you can! There’s a lot that you can tell about someone’s socks! For example, if I saw someone wearing Slytherin socks, I would know not to associate with that person. Ravenclaw all the way! (I kid, I kid!)
Anyway, back to the topic, I’m going to take up my needles and start practicing again tomorrow. Maybe something has clicked while I wasn’t paying attention. Hopefully. (Please pray for me, y’all! XD)
If y’all know of any good tutorials or books for sock knitting, leave me a comment! I’d appreciate the recommendations tremendously!
