I have always loved to learn new crafts. My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was a youngster. I have picked up needlepoint, counted cross stitch, cro-hooking and more over the years. I have even tried to knit, including a sweater for my boyfriend (now husband of 27 years) and more recently a prayer shawl.
I saw this book and have to admit the thought of making some knitted socks seemed daunting but I am willing to give it a try. I paged through the book first and fell in love with many of the pictured socks. Some of my favorites are the lacy and plainer socks, instead of the highly patterned socks.
I am a person who can follow a pattern, just don't ask me to create a pattern! I have read through this books introduction, getting started and tips and tricks pages. I am still feeling daunted! Where are the photos to show us how to knit, pearl or do a stitch I have never heard of before? There is some general information in the back of the book, but I need some photos.
I think I will need to purchase a beginner's knitting book that has photos in it before I can start one of these patterns, especially one of the complicated patterned ones.
Here's hoping I can find the right book to learn how to knit, pearl and whatever, so I can get making some knee-highs!
