Cool enough for socks!

I really don’t like Fall or Winter weather. I’ve always have been a Spring-Summer kind of person.

About the only good thing that I can say about Autumn & the cooler temperatures… it’s cool enough to wear the socks that I have been knitting! Well, yesterday, I wore the very first pair of socks that I had made. They are blue variegated by Opal yarn. I knew that these socks were a little big, but they were my first socks. This was the first time that they had been worn with shoes & I discovered that the heel is too big. The heel slips up & out of the back of my shoes.

Since making my first pair of socks, I have made 2 more pairs, but a bit smaller, so I will be testing them out w/my shoes.

Just to keep thing interesting…I’m trying to learn (self-experimentation) how to knit socks by means of the Magic Loop method instead of the 2-Cir method that I’ve been doing. Stay tuned for more adventures in sock knitting.

Linda, you are coming along great. Sometimes it takes several pairs of socks to find "the right fit". Have a nice weekend!
