Excellent... :!: :!: :!:

My mom just finished her first pair (or is close to it), so I'm going to email this link to her. After I'm finished hubby's valentine's gift, i'm going to make socks....or maybe a knitting bag since I've already accumulated so much knitting stuff Nah, maybe I'll do the socks... :?

This is a course. Itís disciplined. You WILL make not one, but TWO socks, and you will make them MY way, and you will follow the directions to the T.

What a hoot!!!!!!!!!

I love this site and can't wait to make my SECOND pair of socks - Mark's way, of course. My first project (starting in Nov 2004, I believe) was a baby sweater. My second was this pair of socks. Lots of mistakes, but I wear them all the time - my medal of achievement.

I used all acrylic yarn because I liked the pattern, but am anxious to do some with wool - either superwash or a blend. I started each with a new ball, but the yarn balls themselves apparently started off just a bit off. It didn't matter until I got to the toes. Then it shows up GREATLY - hence the pose (covering one toe).
