History is made












I knitted my very first pair of socks at the weekend. Thankyou to Dear Daughter who gave me the needles and wool and thankyou to Cindy http://cindy2paw.typepad.com/2paw/ who posted a great pattern. After some help from Dear Daughter via phone and email, I can now knit socks at last. I have started my second pair and have some wool waiting for the next two pairs. I'm hooked!!!

Ooh, they look great, but too tricky for me I think! Perfect now that the days are getting cooler..

Cool looking socks. Also I caught up on some of your previous posts. I got a good feeling of faith in humankind being restored with your post about your ebay purchase. I know there are always scam artists out there, but it's nice that this wasn't the case with your purchase.

Well done on the sox. My granny used to knit socks for all her sons and sons in law and I remember her helping me 'turn the heel' when I had to knit a pair in first year high school - don't think I've knitted another pair since - bootees would have been my limit!

I live in Qld, so I'd really only need one pair dear Suzy.........!!

I knitted a pair once when I was a teenager, and have never done it since. I still don't know how I didn't get the four needles tangled. It's quite tricky isn't it.... They look great Suzy, well done!

That reminds me of my mum! She was always knitting socks!! To my horror the kids at school used to laugh at my knitted socks and I stopped wearing them. Peter still has some of mum's hand knitted ones but wearing thin now - hey do you darn?
