How's that for a title? Amanda was correct in her comment on my last post, the long awaited and much anticipated new knitting project is ... my first socks. I started them on the 4th and have not put them down, unless it's been to sleep, eat, work at the "real" job, etc. So far, I have finished 1 sock...
...and have another well under way.
Yes, they are sort of short, but I have big feet and the skein of yarn I'm using only had something like 330 yards. I actually made them the same height as a pair of commercially made socks I like, so the height is good. More details to follow when they are done, which should be soon.
Actually, I'm hoping to finish these tonight - yes that would be 4 days for my first pair of socks! I hate to say it because I know Katrina is going to say "I told you so", but I think I may be truly hooked! It's a good thing I've been working on building the sock yarn stash for awhile since it looks like it might get used after all.
Oh, and yes, I am using "Magic Loop". Love that too...how did I knit anything round before it?
OK, need to get back to that sock....must knit more sock...yeah!
