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!!!
