Socksgiving - step 1

If you haven't heard about my birthday present from Jennifer, click here. I think she got tired of my woefulness (is that a word?) every time she posts about knitting socks...

Over the weekend I received my "sock kit", with the first 5 rounds already knit. Lovely Manos del Uruguay yarn. And it's pink! I love pink! Thanks again Jennifer. What a wonderful friend you are!

Step 1 - finish the rib

(I just noticed that in my sock excitement I forgot that this is my 200th post. Do come back tomorrow for a little giveaway.)

Pin It!

200 posts in eleven months! Busy woman! I love to read them! Enjoy your sock-knitting!

Hooray!!!!!

So just to anyone else starting to knit socks manos wool is a great first sock yarn: the thick and thin hides any screwy stitches; you knit it on big needles; and when the socks are too big at the end you can full them a little for a snugger fit.

You'll be wearing handmade socks by turkey day!

I keep planning on making a stocking for Christmas, but keep getting scared by the double pointed needles... Maybe this will be the year.

Woohooo! 200 Wow.

My mom is knitting socks for all the female family members for Christmas. So I'm staying away from socks at the moment. :)

I love that color pink and the varigation in the yarn. I look forward to seeing them on your feet.

I've never knit sock(s)... but I did knit one sock to hang at Christmas many years ago.
