you know, i´ve been searching for the perfect use of the yarn i won a while ago and i really was tempted to knit up a lacy scarf, but couldn´t find a pattern that seemed to "suit" the wool.
now i decided that the perfect way to knit up this yarn would be SOCKS!
then... *sigh* ...it came across my mind that i never-ever knit socks before. how should i be able to knit a pair of socks that would be wearable in the end? neither have i done a heel before... nor a toe... all knitted socks i own are made by my grandma.
i´ve searched for a pattern that may be suitable for a beginner, but didn´t find one that seemed to be all-in-one: beautiful AND easy.
finally, i decided to use the pattern that attracted me most and was at least two-in-one: lace AND socks.
so... may i introcuce my dear readers to the first half of pomatomus?
*muhahahaha* it took me a week, but I DID IT! socks! with heel and toe and everything. i´m so proud of myself, i´m almost bursting my vest!
okay, my other foot still is barenaked,
but after the first sock - what could be worse? nothing can stop me now (please imagine an evil laughter at this point)!
the heel seems to be worked different than my grandma does it. this one was easy (i admit: the pattern was clear & good!), but my grandma´s version looks better and seems to be more... "durable".
now that i found out that knitting a sock isn´t as hard as i always thought, there seem to be tempting socks everywhere i go... hundreds of them in blogland!
hopefully there´s not another addiction in sight. i can´t afford to have one more!
go and see more "pomatomusses" on flickr - i´m off, beginning the other one. my other foot gets cold... *gg*
