Baby Sock is Finished

Baby sock is finished. Only one is knitted as this is my sample for practicing the knitting of sock. I am happy that I can knit sock now and I think I will knit more for myself when winter comes.

As I said in the last post, my challenge is how to join the front and back of toe. I follow the "kitchener stitch" instruction of a book, it is quite ok at the beginning of stitches, but I mix up all the steps of the coming stitches. I have tried many times, still cannot success. This makes me so frustrated that I put it down for a few days. It is lucky that searched from the internet, there is a tip of doing "kitchener stitch". I follow it and it works. It really works when I try once. What a clever way to do it and I really get what I am doing. You see, one more time to prove, internet is the greatest.

I am very happy of this sock and it makes feel so exciting for a few days. I do really enjoy knitting the sock. But there is one problem, I don't know whether there is any sock yarn (special for knitting sock - colourway yarn for stripe sock) can be bought at Hong Kong.

Re my red colourway cotton way, I still have no idea what pattern to be knitted. I have ordered the IK Summer 2006 via on-line a few days ago. Very eager waiting for this and hope that I can choose one for the cotton yarn.
