Knitting Fun

I wrote here about patterns from The Knitter I intended to use. Hah, I have actually



The socks were fun to do and I'd make them again but I will never use a Turkish or afterthought heel. All that painstaking picking up stitches! The nerve-wracking cutting through the waste yarn! Plus, usually when sock knitting you graft the toe and hurrah, sock finished! This way you have to go back and do a lot of tedious fiddling about.



Oh dear, my poor old hands; couldn't really crop them out, though. I'd definitely use this pattern again as it's easy, quick and doesn't use much yarn. What next?

Gardening hands. I am going to start wearing lace gloves when I go out: my hands look about 85 years old!
It's arthritis as well :-( My hands are older than the rest of me!
Both projects are fab. Well done, Barbara!
Thank you!
I've resisted making patterned socks up to now but it was much easier than I expected. I love your tulips!
Very nice! My hands seem to be aging faster than the rest of me.
Thank you! Doesn't seem fair, does it? Thank goodness for gloves.
