My Week in Socks

Last weekend when I went camping, Mum taught me to knit socks.  It was so fun that I decided to focus on knitting for the week and try to avoid the computer.  I was successful for the most part; I did go online some but not as often as I usually do, and as a result, I nearly finished a pair of socks in just a week.

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.

    I find it funny about the sheep farm. "Look Fred! Isn't that yours?"
