I've just joined this group and wanted to say hi to everyone.
I got New Pathways for Sock Knitters last week and I felt a bit overwhelmed. I'm not terribly good at visualizing the process of a pattern from directional text and diagrams, even when accompanied by great pictures. And there is so much of all that in this book!
I very nearly put it away on the shelf and re-dedicated myself to whittling down my massive stash of Opal with my comfort sock knitting: plain stockinette/solid heel and toe.
But that glorious Coriolus sock kept calling to me so I thought that, even though I didn't truly understand La-Rink and La-Link, maybe I should just follow the directions and trust Cat Bordhi.
After all, I did numerous pairs of socks with absolutely no grasp of just how the turning of a simple heel worked. I just followed the directions and the magic happened.
So I made the Little Sky Sock (in Dream in Color with size 3 dpn).
And the mysteries began to unfold. And my excitement mounted and I thought, Yes! I can do this!
But I wanted company. So here I am.
I'm looking forward to sharing and learning with you all!
