I feel like a big girl knitter now! I have completed my first sock! Our instructor, Kara, at Needleworks in Champaign, has been absolutely awesome in helping us understand sock knitting and getting the technique down. I have learned that I tend to be a tight knitter, which is a good thing for socks!
There are a few oops, and a lot of split yarns. But I got to tell you, this sock feels pretty good on!
Never fear, I will have a pair! I started the second sock yesterday at work. I discovered I had dropped a stitch three rows beyond. Thus the paper clip was employed as a stitch holder until I can unknit down to it! Another repurposed tool!
Those needles are size 2! It is like knitting with bamboo skewers!
