Vanilla…

The Vanilla Mansock makes progress, albeit slowly. The heel is turned and the gusset is under way.

I can’t help feeling a little pleased in moving so swiftly from terrified sock virgin to a knitter who is prepared to wing it on the basis of a couple of rough measurements and a vague notion of how a basic sock works.

Perhaps I should keep the sense of pride under wraps until something visibly like a sock of approximately correct size falls off the needles? There’s many a slip…

Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
