Sock (s)

Knitted sock (s) IMG_5485CWell, well, well :=) Here it is. “The Sock”.

As i mentioned before I have not been knitting much in my life. The mittens I made were my first pair of mittens. In the end of the 60’s I knitted a sweater. I would not have been able to do it without a lot of help from a friend of mine. And I have knitted 3 pairs of socks long ago. I think it was in the beginning of the 70’s. Oh, and a knitted sweater and skirt. Back then I thought it turned out pretty well. Today I think it did neither look good nor fit well at all. I even wore the outfit at work ! Gosh, thinking of it now makes me feel so embarrassing.  Well, that was about 45 years ago I guess and hope no one other than me are able to remember it anymore.

Back to “the sock”.  Not the perfect one but a sock. After struggling a bit with the heel I finished the sock yesterday. Then I had used all the yarn. On the way back home from my language lesson I went to the shop, from where I bought the yarn for all my knitted works, to buy one more yarn skein. Oh no, there was no more of them. I asked whether they are going to have some more of them. Unfortunately, she said, no, not for now. Maybe in the fall. I was very disappointed. I went to couple of other shops. Nope, could not find the same kind and same color. The internet, yes the internet. I found the manufacturer of the yarn and was able to order one skein. That was yesterday so I think I will have it on Monday or Tuesday. Meanwhile I am going to buy more yarn today, but not in grey, to knit yet an other pair of socks.
