Not very Summery......

but at least it is a project that is finally completed and that makes me happy.

That's what I get for trying something new (never made socks before) and trying to do it from a "free pattern" that had to be converted from centimeters (something that I never learned in school since I am too old apparently!).

  3. Oh, Faye, those are the cutest socks ever!!!

  4. Thanks, I feel confident now to try another pair.

  5. They look great. Being a new knitter, I have yet to try socks and it won't be anytime soon. I'm working on a simple shawl at present and almost finishing up a purse/bag that I will felt once I have the straps knitted. I wish I had learned to knit long ago, I've been missing a lot of enjoyment.


I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
