That was until Burgtreffen this year when I learned how to make socks the easy way. And now I have finished my first pair!
So, you might ask yourself two things: How did she do it and why are the socks made of such thick wool? It both goes together, as a used a knitting frame like this:
You put the wool around the knobs of the knitting frame and pull it over with the needle thingy. Very easy, but there are two disadvantages
- you can only knit right, so the wool rolls at the hems
- and you can only knit very thick wools otherwise the holes are pretty big and the knitting gets too loose
