After reading Margene’s post on Roositud I knew I had to try it out for myself. I had always thought it was simple embroidery, but now that I know it’s a knitting technique, I’m all for it!
I’m doing Anu’s Stockings from Folk Knitting in Estonia. I decided to do them cuff-down because I was feeling rather nostaligic. Never to leave a good pattern untouched though, I’ve decided to change up the colors and do something more fun. I have the other 2 colors picked out and I’ll hopefully be able to show them to you by week’s end (I don’t get much knitting time during the week and I still have that birthday scarf to finish by Wednesday).
I have high hopes for these socks. I’ll be teaching another sock knitting class in February and I’d love to wear them to the first class.
