Some knitting content

After all of this crocheting, I had to pick up a knitting project. I found a half finished spiral sock that I started over a year ago, completed that, now I'm working on the mate. It just felt wrong watching Knitty Gritty on DIY while crocheting. Also, I had to have something to bring to our Knit Nite, although many of us also crochet and we welcome either crochet or knit projects to be worked on. I found this spiral sock pattern a few years ago and it has remained one of my favorites even though I am no longer a beginner sock knitter. I like these, particularly as gifts, because I don't need to know how long someone's foot is, there is no heel to wear out, and they stay up! This is a great pattern to adapt to babies or small children because the socks can be used longer than others while they're still growing. The only problem I ever had wasn't related to the pattern. I made a pair of these for a friend without knowing she was allergic to wool! I've only made these in worsted weight although now I'm dying to try them in a nice sock yarn, I'm thinking another order from Knit Picks is in my future.
