My cousin (who is 13 years old and incredibly fancy) requested socks for Christmas. Handmade socks, even. A boy after my own heart! I was more than happy to oblige. After some reconnaissance, I discovered that the colors he requested for the socks were the colors of a certain London soccer team known as Arsenal. High class, this kid.
Since scarves are winners in the world of soccer swag, I decided I'd make him a scarf to go with the socks. I ordered the yarn from KnitPicks and got ready to rock.
"Make the scarf first," I said to myself, "It'll take longer"
from this tutorial. I was told it would be soooo easy, and it looked like it would on the first read-through. Then, while attempting to knit it, I forgot how to math and had to restart a few times. Then the baby stole all my focus so I had to write out the entire pattern and mark off rows when I finished them. But, I am pleased with the outcome! And I will certainly make heels with this method again.
|While setting up this photo I went a little nuts when the book matched perfectly to the colors of the socks. I feel so pro.|
|Hipsteeerrrr. It had to be done. I regret nothing.|
I really need to make myself some socks. It's been so cold here!! -30's is not okay. Not okay at all.
