🎵I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want

🎵I’ll tell you what I want, what I really really want/ I really really really want to knit-a-sock-now🎵 A lovely present from Mr Words that I have been leafing through from under the blanket of seasonal ailments. Luckily this lurgy only involves being cold and weedy rather than anything too woeful, but I’m a whole flight of stairs away from a pair of sock needles and everyone else is out on their bikes. Not pictured is a gorgeous skein of @rustyferretyarn that the even more gorgeous @muirandco gave me. It’s the colour of the jeans I’ll be wearing once pjs are off the acceptable-daytime-clothing list. Back to the book: it starts from the very most basic facts about fibre, and how to match it with a pattern. Loads of factors I’d never considered. It’s kind of like going on a wine-tasting after basing your choices on From Russia With Love*. Proper masterclass, and 20 patterns to illustrate @claraparkes’ advice. In the future, I will cast on some socks. For now, telly. And maybe an After Eight. *Never drink red wine with fish. #knitter #knittersofinstagram #knitstagram #sockknittersofinstagram #sockstagram #sockbook #sockknitterslibrary #theknittersbookofsocks #claraparkes #aftereights #wholeavesemptywrappersinthebox
