I'm a new knitter. I'm mostly a knitter because I wanted period stockings, and so I figured I ought to make them. I'm nearly done with my first pair. They're for my lord, Andrew. It's a pattern that I was taught in part by our local knitting whiz Angharad, based on a this pattern from Chris Knit Blog.
As you can see, I'm nearly done!
I also just bought the yarn, and some new needles for MY pair. I'm only just begun on those. I still need to finish my swatch to know how many stitches to cast on! Very excited!
