I'm not a creative person. I always need a pattern when I knit socks, or whatever.
Sometimes, I try to knit something totally original, but then, my mind ceases to work. My hands stop. And I wonder what I was trying to do.
Pattern books are for knitter like me. Well, they are for every knitter (and every knitter-to-be), but still I really appreciate them a lot.
I took this twisted stitch pattern from one of those books. At the very first time I saw this pattern, I thought it would be very nice for socks.
As already written, I was right.
It was just fun to knit this pair.
The pattern looks like chained hearts, more or less. Also, it is a bit whorled.
It was too hot to wear them, but I put them on.
Oh, how I'm content with them.
If I'd knit this pair again, I'd like to make toes a bit longer and foot parts a bit shorter.
I'm thinking of knitting next pair with a pattern from another pattern book.
Oh, I forgot.
I'm knitting another pair as an outside project (This pair was my home project).
I'll blog about them next time.
