I am a sporadic blogger. I make no apologies. It is not like anyone is reading this anyways. :) This more for me.
This is my attempt a my first sock.
I started it almost 3 years ago. I don't like the way the yarn(Lion Brand Magic Stripes)feels and I hate knitting the 2x2 ribbing. It makes my hand hurt. I pull it out every once in a while when I really want hand knit socks for myself and knit a few rounds. It is always the same, I don't like the feel of the yarn, I hate knitting the 2x2 ribbing and it makes my hand hurt.
I really should just frog it but I don't want to waste all the the pain and ribbing. I want to weep when I think of knitting the second sock. I tell myself that I will knit these and they will be my practice socks. Then I can order some super decadent sock yarn and knit what I want.
Look what came in the mail yesterday.......................
