Like everyone else in the world, I am in lock-down. Not as harsh as other countries, at this stage it is mostly voluntary. Strongly advised to stay at home; and cafes, restaurants, gyms, any place where people congregate are closed. The borders are closed. People are still being selfish and incredibly irresponsible.
So time for a new knitting project. I am going to knit socks (using a lovely red Malabrigo -it’s called Cereza). I am going to put this on the leg
I am really pleased I had a go at knitting intarsia in the round – not a fan of the ‘seam’ you can see on the back (see below).
My first heart was much better than my second heart. I think it was because I left all of the weaving in to the end on the first one, but did as I went with the second, which made my tension a bit crap.
I do like the different coloured cuff, heels and toes, so I will do that again. I am keen to try stranded colour work socks, but next up I am going to knit my own version of Helen Stewart’s Shell Cottage Socks (I will use the stitch pattern, but my own ‘recipe’).
