This is proof of my first turned heel.
This is proof of the completion of my very first sock (I learned how to graft and wove in the ends just an hour ago).
Let me digress for a moment. I think stockings should be hung to the left, as above, and not to the right (see below).
Why is it so many Christmas stockings are oriented to the right and not the left. Am I crazy? Wait a minute, I don't know if I want you to answer that...
To avoid that terrible SSS problem (Second Sock Syndrome), here’s proof of starting sock number two (look carefully into the background of this picture).
I have some questions for you:
- How much do you have to knit on your second sock to avoid SSS?
- Have I met the goal (see photo above)?
- Is it okay to continue using the same ball of yarn and not starting a fresh ball (thereby needing to join yarn at some point in the second sock)? This may be a stupid question but, hey, I'm just learning over here!
- I’ve heard from a variety of sources that sock yarn does not constitute stash yarn. I’m keen to know why (I remember reading why but, I was too scared of socks at the time so I glossed over that section). I am all ears and interested in a compelling argument...one that's useful on DH's would also be of interest.
