I had some time this morning to cast on for one of my small projects from my "to do/to learn list". My first sock. I must have done two swatches to get gauge. Then I CO and just started knitting like crazy. Now, I've mentioned before that I'm not a sock person. I don't get the "I need to make one of these" feelings/urges when I see hand knitted socks. BUT, I have to say this one caught my eye.
So, I'm knitting up a pair for me. A trial pair, I call it. I have a funny feeling I will end up wearing these a lot and DH will end up with a pair as well.
I can now scratch off my list: teaching myself to knit in the round with DPNs and for knitting my first sock (still a work in progress).
Not bad, huh?
