And she did! With a passion!
You can go over here to read her answer, which really make me laugh! But it also did ring a few bells and light a few lights. So next time I went to my local crafty shop, this is what I came out with!!
So what made me give it a try
If I can quote from Helen
......I never pull on a pair of delicious bright, smooshy, soft, cosy socks and don’t think aaaaaah.
...... every time I look at a newly and nicely turned heel I have a sense of achievement
'...socks are the one knitted garment that you can make with gay abandonment, irrespective of the colour.
So, ever one to learn a new skill, you will now find me of an evening knitting my socks, hopefully on the patio, no longer in front of a roaring log fire! Helen, you've not converted me yet, but you have got me interested!
Watch this space.
