I took the first apprehensive steps today into sock knitting. I wasn’t about to start knitting them cuff-first, so it’s toe-up for me. I tried in vain last night to make sense of this “Magic Cast On” for my dpn’s, because I wasn’t about to use circulars. It finally ‘clicked’ today for me, though, and I cast on the first toe of my first sock.
I figure since this is a post of firsts, I’ll showcase my first spindle plied and wheel spun yarns, EVER.
This is my first wheel-spun yarn! I’m very excited about it. I think I did really well for a first-timer and it was nice to have Barb there to let me know exactly what I was doing. It was so much fun!
I have absolutely NO idea what I’m going to do with each of them, seeing as how they’re only about 50 yards each.. I don’t think even Ravelry can help me figure that out.
I think I’m going to go read now. Being a little overworked this week, paired with 5 tall beers has made Alex pass right out tonight.
PS: In keeping with the theme, the banner up top is my first try at Photoshop! Woohoo!
