Yesterday, completely by accident, I stumbled upon Michelle’s AWESOME website The Knit Purl Hunter. I was on YouTube looking for videos on toe up sock knitting (which I still don’t get by the way) and I found one of her videos.
So I spent some time poking around her website and she regularly host KALs (Knit-A-Longs). I’ve never done one so what the heck – right??? The sock is an ankle sock so it should go quickly. Week three (of four) is up today, but I’m about 1/2 way done with week one (OK, really only 1/4 of the way done since I do have to make two socks). The absolute BEST part of Michelle’s KALs – she links the “How-to” YouTube videos right next to each technique – so if you don’t know how to do it – it’s right there for you to watch! Given the fact that I’m NOT a knitter by any means and I’ve only completed one pair of very basic socks, this is so helpful to me!! I made sure that I subscribed to her YouTube Channel too so I can quickly access her videos from my iPhone (ain’t technology grand???) and know when she posts a new video.
You can’t really tell from the photo, but there is a row of holes in the middle which will be turned into a picot edging – that is the next step so we’ll see how it goes. There are a few completed KALs on Michelle’s site so do check them out – and join the fun! I’ve added a button to my sidebar too.
