I want to make these socks soooo badly. I can cast on. I can turn a heel. I can decrease I can bind off but the one thing I can't do is do the color work. I don't know how, but I so want to learn. I'd love to make these socks for my Gram.
Goal number 5 for 2011 is learn to do color work. And goal number 6 is to knit 2 pairs of socks from Around the World in Knitted Socks for Gram. These socks are from that book. I could do two goals for 2011 in one pair of socks.
Color work is scary. Two yarns. People with thingies on their fingers. I don't know.
My mom gave me Mastering Color Knitting by Melissa Leapman for my birthday. I really want to do some of the projects from this book but I really need to finish a couple other things before I start doing any color work. And really, it's time for me to challenge myself in my knitting. All the basics I feel that I've pretty much mastered. So it's time. And socks might be a good thing to start with, small project that wouldn't be too much of an investment in yarn or time to determine if I even want to keep going with color work.
I don't know who I'm trying to convience...me or you.
