Lately, Elise has been very interested in my knitting. She takes note when I am wearing a sweater and always asks if I knit it. The answer always seems to be "no". She has also taken an interest in what I will be knitting for her, and is going as far as requesting different knit items.
From what I hear, this stage doesn't always last, so I have decided to try to take advantage of her interest while it is still there. So when Elise asked for a pair of hand knit socks, it was time for a special shopping trip (never mind the fact that my feet have never actually been inside a pair of hand knit socks... maybe soon!).
And I was not surprised in the least when this purple yarn was chosen and came home with us. It's actually a little darker and a little more grape-like than the picture lets on.
A true Elise purple.
Of course I tried to sell her on my interpretation of purple, but it didn't work.
Eh, looks like I win since it still came home with us.
So wish my luck- I haven't been much of a sock knitter in the past years.
What's your favorite way to knit a sock?
