waiting room socks

It was during a long spell of waiting room time that I learnt to knit socks.

I hadn’t picked up knitting needles for years but hand knitted socks were being talked about a lot so I decided to give them a whirl. It is an addiction, everything you read is true; they are the most portable form of knitting taking up no space in a bag, they are not difficult, knitting in the round is the most comforting thing and they are true luxury to wear on your feet.

Not to mention the wonderful variety of sock yarn to choose from.

Today after almost a year we were back in the same waiting room and I completed a few rounds of the current sock. But, hopefully, this was a one off visit.  As well as learning to knit socks we have learnt a lot about wellbeing. Sock production may be slower but health and happiness are returning.
