If not mis-matched pajamas, Mommy-made wrist-warmers, and Wii?
My 2-at-a-time experiment went well – I think it was probably a smart idea not to complicate the process of learning to work two items together by also trying to learn how to make socks at the same time. At least for a newbie like me. I spent so much time getting my working yarns twisted up, I’d have been stressed-out by the process if I also had to worry about sock anatomy.
These are simply stockinette tubes with thumbholes, 34 stitches around, using Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the Deja Vu colorway. They’re a great fit for my 6-year-old, and also my 9-year-old, who now wants his own pair. Had I done it according to the book, I’d probably still be struggling with the cuff.
Oh, did I mention I haven’t learned how to purl on needles yet? No? Ah. Well that does somewhat limit my choices, doesn’t it? Purling is next on my knitting-to-learn agenda. Maybe a pair of 2-at-a-time wrist-warmers for the 9-year-old in a ribbed pattern?
I love weekends.
