Sock It To Me Monday: The Home Stretch

Normally I write my posts in the evening to post in the morning but I didn’t do that last night. I had one more row of gusset decreases to do but I was too tired to complete it and post before bed. I wanted to be at a milestone location before posting. So here I am after a cup of iced coffee and breakfast. The gusset decreases are done and now it’s just round and round to the toe. I’m hoping to finish tomorrow. It will require capitalizing on those few lost minutes here and there since I have a bunch of non knitting things to do.

    It’s my ambition to knit socks. But it’s a daunting task. Four needles with no ends frighten me. But looking at your lovely pair, I’m tempted once again.

    • You should try again! Sock knitting looks hard but is very easy. A beginner pattern and YouTube videos are all you need. If double pointed needles seem daunting you could try Magic Loop (on a long circular needle) or knitting on two circular needles. Good luck!

    Thank you! I’ve been cowed by sock heels for months, to the point of being so afraid of failure I put away my yarn and needles. I tried countless patterns and ways of knitting heels yet nothing worked. I have to see a thing–envision it–before I fully grasp a concept. I drove my art instructions nuts. We were taught the need for thumbnails, thumbnails, thumbnails! Every student got it except one. I could see a drawing or painting forming in my mind’s eye ninety-nine percent of the time. So who needed thumbnails? That did not mean I didn’t have to draw an idea over and over until it was perfect but . . .

    It’s been the same with knitting. Sock heels stumped and defeated me. None of the books or videos cured me. The fear of failure overwhelmed and conquered. But this image makes it crystal clear! I get it. I believe I understand how it’s done! You are a true teacher! I hope I am a good student because I’m gonna dig out my yarn and needles and try again. They need finding first. No pressure.

    Shh. I’ll be back. I think I must practice from the beginning . . .

    Thank you.
