Food for thought.

Memory is a wonderful treasure chest for those who know how to pack it.

All thumbs....

Well, it really hurt to tear out my "gauge" on the sock yarn. It was a 4" x 4" gauge and with only #2 size needles, ....that's a lot of knitting to have to tear out. I know it is a good thing, but it still hurt.

Now I have to tell you that I haven't made socks in eons. In fact it has probaby been 30 years since I made Santa stockings for my kids. I've never done any for myself to "wear"!

So, I am feeling like I am all thumbs here.

Have it under a little more control here.

Starting to look like something here, but still feeling a little like I am all thumbs. Hopefully it will get better the longer the sock gets. Can't wait to see how this turns out. Hope I like it enough to make the other sock!!!


  1. I hope you are better than me and get both made. I made at least three socks but never the second mate to them. At least one pair was for DH. DH said he guessed I should have married a one leg man to be able to wear them. Still sitting in the drawer with the yarn. Maybe someday.
