Sock it to 'em

For kicks, I knit socks. Talk about life in the fast lane! These are knitted from the toe upwards. A lot less brain straining that way, believe me. This is the first time I've invented my own pattern and I quite like it. It looks like basket weave. I'm usually a very unsubtle person as far as colour is concerned but this fairly neutral yarn with the odd flash here and there is tickling my fancy, not to mention my feet. The downside of sock knitting is the fact that you need two. Imagine finishing a jumper only to have to start all over again.

Come on Sally, we need to know - yarn? pattern details?

Terrrific. As for knitting 2, you could always do a "pair" of slightly different sox - why do they have to be the same?

And in War and Peace there is a maid or nurse who astonished the children by knitting both socks at once, on the same pair of needles -- there's a challenge for you!

Okay, as long as I don't have to read War and Peace!
