The reason I decided to start knitting again was simple: I wanted to knit socks. This idea was initially planted several years ago by my dear friend Gina, who manages to make all things crafty look simple. I thought it might be neat to try, but just never got around to it while I was still stateside because of my anti-knitting attitude. (I blame the staff at that yarn store in Ventura for this. You can figure out which one I mean. There's only one store that sells exclusively yarn.)
Then I got to Japan, started knitting, and started thinking about socks again. And then I was exploring different yarns on Ravelry, and...
Have you seen how awesome sock yarn can be? I think it's amazing.
So here' my first sock:
And yes, there will be a second one to match. Hopefully with a bit more polish to it, too.
