teabird's first tigerpaw

tigerpaw1 I decided to improvise a sock - plain 2 x 2 ribbing, stockinette leg and foot, Eye of Partridge heel - so that I could pay attention to the sock and knit it as a meditative project instead of "it doesn't look like the picture and I'm a failure." It worked!

I c/o 48 stitches and loosely followed the sock recipe in Sensational Knitted Socks, just to get the numbers right. It fits perfectly.

Now I'll cast on for the second peaceful, dove-grey tigerpaw sock...

(I hope the menagerie will approve!)

wonderful.

i love to knit that way.. to just knit, and let the yarn do what it wants to. I am most definately a process knitter, (with occational bouts of product knitting)

I.Love.It. Nice job, and I cannot imagine that the menagerie would not approve!

So, you've become a real sock knitter this past year - remember how scared you were when you started???
