Being more of a knitter than a crocheter, turning my first heel was an important milestone for Mum.
Without further ado, here is my week in socks.
Monday it was rainy--a good stay-in-and-knit-socks day.
Tuesday Mum and I drove to the city to go to Costco.
Wednesday was the weekly coffee in the horse barn day.
Thursday after work I stayed up late to knit.
Friday at Nifty Needles I finished my first sock.
Saturday we didn't go camping so we had a picnic by the flats and had a bonfire.
Sunday we went to a sheep farm (how fitting).
Call me an eager beaver, but I can't wait to finish this pair so I can start a new pair. Mum says she thinks they'd turn out better on a smaller set of needles with a higher stitch count, and even though I only wanted ankle socks, I see now that I should have made the legs a little taller. On top of that, I want to learn to "knit like a big girl." I still drop my yarn every time I make a stitch. The more practice I have, the better I'll be.
