Twisted Journey

Finally! I have actually finished a pair of Twisted Hourglass socks! :D

I started the first pair last year and absolutely loved them, then realized they wouldn't fit. Very sad! This year, I decided to do them in a much stretchier yarn. They are bright and I love them.

They also have some errors, but you know what? They fit, they look good (at a distance, hehehe) and I've accomplished something that I've wanted to do for a long time.

This coming weekend, I'll be learning how to do an entirely different sock construction, the Skew sock, while at a knitters' weekend retreat in Pennsylvania. Two of the women from the Wednesday knitting group are also going, so that will be lots of fun! Catherine is soooo funny, and Veronica is adorable. I'm really looking forward to spending time with them and learning new things. Yay!

  1. I've seen that pattern before, and I always meant to make myself a pair. They look great!
