This pair of socks is dedicated with my thanks to Ali who helped me choose the yarn, advised on needle size and leant me a pattern, and to Kristina who inspired me when she gave me a pair of handknitted socks and assured me that I'd be able to knit my own. Also grateful thanks to Lizzie who left a comment explaining how to avoid laddering -most useful Lizzie.
They are not perfect by any means. The toes have pointy lumps and grafting was tricky. The cast on edge is raggedy and the knitting uneven in places. But they have turned out much better than I anticipated and I know my next pair will be an improvement.
I've always regarded myself as a non-knitter but now I am not so sure. My sock knitting experiment has been so enjoyable and rewarding that I feel ready for more knitting adventures.
Before I cast on my next pair of socks though here is my March sampler. March has been an inspiring month for me -meetings with creative blogging friends and a new skill learnt. I do wish it had been a bit warmer and springlike though. Here's hoping for some proper spring weather in April.
