Ready To Begin

I finally had the chance to purchase the yarn I needed for my knitting project, for the KAL. Now, I just have to begin. I did begin the book, last night. I read through the first chapter of Book 1 before I went to sleep. I am planning some more reading today when I can squeeze it in.

I am not beginning the knitting part just yet. I am trying to finish a sweater that I have been working on for a month, first. Almost done. What am I knitting out of the "fisherman" Wool Ease? Some warm stockings, based on the Very Tall Socks from the Winter 04 issue of Knitty.com. I am making the stockings all in one color with possible embroidery on them, at the end. This is the plan. I hope to begin the stockings sometime this coming weekend. I am just pleased to have the yarn, the book and the inspiration...to do this.

Those will be soooo warm and pretty! Embroidery would make them totally stand out in the crowd. I think it's the Vogue Winter 2006 issue that has some over-the-knee socks with embroidery on them. They're super pretty :)

What a great idea! I think the ladies in Arthur's time needed nice knitted (warm) socks with the long winters. Embroidery sounds lovely.
