I had a couple of days off this week and since I wasn’t feeling too well and as the weather was incredibly disgusting…. gray, cloudy, windy, cold and rainy… I had a lot of time to fool around indoors. So while catching up on my prooflistening for LibriVox, I started to knit some more socks. (I love socks… as all of you have probably noticed by now. )
Above you can see my very first attempt at knitting cables. It’s rather easy to do them, though having yet another additional needle can be really confusing. But in spite of constantly getting tangled up, losing count of the knitted rows and searching for one needle or another… I think it looks pretty good already.
And here you can see my first attempt at knitting “eyelets”. In case you are wondering, eyelets are those tiny holes… it took me quite a while to find out what they are called and it took me even longer to figure out how to do them. Actually I had some help. (Thanks so much, Kara!!! )
But once you know what you are doing, they are really easy to knit and look very pretty. The first sock is almost finished.
