I’ve started so I’ll finishAugust 12, 2011
Yes, it’s yet another pair of Zokni socks — the slowest sock project in the world, ever!
I started making them when we were on holiday last October. I wanted a portable project and needed something that I could take on a plane. I wasn’t sure if I’d get knitting needles or crochet hooks through airport security but had read that tiny wooden/bamboo needles should be okay. I didn’t have any problems but I never did knit on the plane — our flights were night flights (cheaper) so I was mainly sleeping — and I was worried about losing my tiny DPNs on the floor. Maybe a circular needle would have made more sense!
I did knit a bit with my feet up in the sun while we were away but once we got back they got pushed aside for other projects — mostly of the baby-related variety. I’ve been thinking I should try to get a few unfinished items completed and tidied away at last so dug them out a couple of weeks ago. I know I’ve made loads of Zoknis but I still really enjoy working this pattern and I’m not sure why it took me so long to get around to it. They’re amazingly comfy, the pattern is surprisingly memorable once you get into it and they’re certainly not a boring knit. I do want to try some other sock patterns at some point, but I like this one so much that I very much doubt this will be the last pair I ever make.
