I finally got to knit a pair of toe up socks in the magic loop method. This blog, Come to Silver had the best tutorial I could find. Thanks! It was great because I didn’t waste a single bit of yarn and I only used one needle for the two socks. She likes them a lot even though they aren’t perfect. It is wabi-sabi right? She used to embroider and make kimonos. She is quite crafty. Maybe that is where I get it from?
In case you aren’t familiar with wabi sabi aesthetic, this is from Wikipedia.
“Wabi-sabi (侘寂?) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance oftransience. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent and incomplete”. It is a concept derived from the Buddhist assertion of the Three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin?), specificallyimpermanence (無常 mujō?).
