Demands, demands

Knitting November 25th, 2007

Demand for Kim-knitted socks has increased dramatically in the past few days. In the queue are socks for:

  • Danielle
  • Melissa
  • Jeanette

Melissa’s request came in response to Matt’s generous offer of knitted socks. [He's pimping me out.] She’d like stars knitted in. This requires colorwork, which I don’t know how to do. I know the principles, but lack the skills. This is unfortunate for Matt, whose beloved (and much demanded) bleep-blorp space invaders socks require colorwork skills.

I decided that perhaps simple knitted stars could teach me a thing or two, so I made a rudimentary pattern, found some old yarn, and cast on to give it a second try, with some success. So Melissa, there’s hope yet. Just don’t hold your breath.
