Though I've done loads and loads of knitting, I can't ever remember knitting socks...though I remember my Mother knitting some. If at first you don't succeed then rip it back and start again...first time around I thought S1k1 for the heel was a misprint only to realise afterwards that it wasn't...so off the needles it came..now looking very swish if I do say so myself. I hope to finish sock no. 1 later and will post a photo when complete. I hope to paint the soles of them with puff paint so I can wear them safely around the house without other footwear...we shall see!
