hexagon socks

when i got the book think outside the sox last year, i was all about the socks on the cover, the hexagon socks.

i immediately cast on, making this pair from red heart heart & sole sock yarn. the colorway i chose was 'razzle dazzle'.

as usual, i started out with good intentions, and finised the first sock relatively quick. and then, the honeymoon was over. i had tried a new technique (knitting socks as motifs). it fit. it looked cool. and i had an orphan.

since then, i picked up the mate here & there, and finally got serious about it.

it's 'self-striping' month over at SKA. my taffy socks were knitted this year for that challenge. i finished them a week and a half ago, and decided that perhaps i should try to finish up these hexagons (finally!).

Just recently decided I needed to learn to crochet, knit and sew. and only because I happened to come across a 20 volume set of books(and the UNUSED sewing patterns:from the 70s even)at a thrift store(paid $2 for all of it!!). AND I just happened to be researching some things and found your blog...I am already addicted!! Can't wait to get started!! LOVE your blog!!
