i had to finish the second sock before the great yarn mystery started, and i found that knitting the second sock feels (is?) much quicker than the first one!
i’ve never really felt the urge to knit socks, and i’ve just breezed quickly through blogs about socks, but these socks might have given me the bug. it has resultet in buying two sock books – sensational knitted socks by charlene schurch and knitting vintage socks by nancy bush. so far these books have been nice to look through, but i will get back to any knitting i do from them! it seems the sensational knitted socks has a lot more stich patterns to use for designing own socks and it gives a very good explanation of different ways to do heels and toes.
