The saga of learning how to make socks continues. I found a pattern online at www.kitty.com for a small practice sock to be used to learn how socks are made and I've started the project.
This sock is the size you would make if you wanted a tree ornament, and it just might turn into one. Both of the other attempts at starting are gone now. I did save the beginning of the toe I had made. Off the needles it looked pretty good considering. I'll be doing a bunch of swatching before I put anything real on needles again. I think when I finish this I'll be ready for a beginning sock for real.
That isn't going to be easy, by the way. I have big feet, and I have swollen ankles. We have been working on the ankles and they are so much better, but they are still 2 or 3 inches larger than the circumference of the foot.
