Switching gears here a bit to show a picture of a pair of socks I just completed for the Prayer Shawl Ministry I belong to. We knit items for families in need for Christmas and work at it all year. I love making socks!
I guess the whole process is intriguing. Starting out on three needles, turning the heel, decreasing to the toe, and having a completed sock there when you are all done. These particular socks were down in Rowan cotton (sport weight). An expensive yarn that was donated to our group. I'm not sure I really like working with cotton; it stretches a bit too much, but I was pleased with the result.
