Knitting socks is something I've always wanted to do. First, Mom tried to teach me to knit as a kid, but I couldn't sit still enough to not drip stitches. I took well to crocheting, easier to fix mistakes. A few years ago, I tried knitting scarves and loved it, but socks seemed daunting--4 needles, are you kidding???
Well, I've taken the plunge, and bought a circular needle, knitted this pink pair with those. It's called the magic loop method. They are far from perfect, but they are done and fit!!
So, I had to try the double pointed needles. And I'm in the middle of these for the hubs. He'll wear them around the house when it's chilly, He actually asked for them. The book is what I'm using to learn. Bought it at JoAnnes.
I can see the picture is a little dark. Fall colors, starting early.
I have a quilt to share too, but since I never get the pictures where I want them, I'll post a second entry
