One of my very favorite things on the Internet is something called Throwback Thursday.
All over social media people post pictures from their histories and whether it’s baby shots or fondly remembered special events, this phenom is usually a sweet giggle and a half!
On my personal knitting timeline, one of the most favorite things that every happened to me was learning to knit socks. If I had my druthers, I’d just knit socks all the live long day – there’s just nothing that is so soothing and that trips my calm mode more than going round and round and round…
Early on, I couldn’t find a sock pattern that met my height and toe shaping requirements. So I tweaked and tweaked and finally came up with what you see on the left.
…this dilly little piece of cardboard contains all the info one needs to knit that sock. I carry it around with me at all times in my wallet. Which, in fact, is where the cardboard originally came from. HANDY!
My favorite sock has a longer than average leg length and a more elegantly shaped toe.
And in honor of Throwback Thursday, I’ve posted a cleaned up version of something that first made its appearance on the knitting blog in 2004…
