We just got back from the park. Which is a good thing, because it is about to rain. The Little Diva (my 7 year old daughter) took pictures of me knitting. You might see them some day, but today you get Old Knitting. (Said with a spooky echo)
Here are my very first hand knit socks. I didn't worry about the not matching thing. I wanted to learn to knit socks so badly, but I had no one to teach me. Not for free anyway. So, I just went and learned all by myself. Thanks to the library and the innernets! These were knit with Lion Brand Magic Stripe. I heard that it's going to be discontinued. I need to go buy more, if I can find it. I like the cheapness, and the way this yarn wears. No holes in these babies!
These are Mother's Day 2005 gifts. I knit the green ones for my mom out of hand-dyed (by me with kool-ade) merino. The striped ones are knitpicks simple stripes. Those went to my mother-in-law. It must be the camera angle, because both pairs of these socks were the same size., even though the green ones look tiny.
Well, thanks to everyone who has read my first couple of posts. I have to go let Little Diva here paint my nails. The fun never ends around here!!
