Knit 1, Purl 2

A few years ago, I was given a quick knitting lesson by the education coordinator (at the time) at JoAnn. I had wanted to learn, just never did. The lesson lasted, oh about 5 mins - if that. After that I would make a few scarves here and there, but not much. Last year I started to make a few more things. My big project was felted mittens, which I LOVED!

After these, I took a bit of a break. When I went to Colorado, I wanted to learn how to make socks and Heather was kind enough to show me.

I love knitting socks.

Amaya has 2 or 3 pairs.

I am still working on a full pair for me. I have made a few single ones, but I have never been happy with any, until this beauty came along. These socks are almost done -- well one at least. I made a few mistakes and had to rip out a few inches - yes inches. I took a break and made a few hats. I needed to feel like I completed something. Hopefully, I will have one compete sock done by the end of the weekend and the matching one soon after.
