But in this instance I was rather indignant to learn that the work I had accomplished so far was just to be tossed aside. Knitting on dpns has never been a strength or much fun for me. I was pretty darn pleased by late Sunday morning when I had successfully knit my required lenght without completely losing control of the dpns or injuring myself. Plus, I was not interested in my first sock attempt being for anyone, I just wanted to understand the mechanics. As I'm emailing this info to Melissa, I get an email back from her saying she's off for the day. WHAT??? I am ready to knit a sock and you are leaving me?! Well, I guess it and I would have to wait for further direction later.
But I couldn't.
The sock was staring at me.
I know it was sneaking around, trying to get my attention as I moved about the house, trying to work, trying to get some chores done.
I was getting twitchy.
I couldn't wait for Melissa.
Here is Melissa, teacher and cheerleader extraordinaire with my very cute sock:
Here's it's adorable little toe. Not a bad Kitchener for the first time out:
I must reiterate, I would not try Kitchener without a net just quite yet.
Thanks for pushing me Melissa. I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. I've already got yarn for a full pair of socks for Jonathan - he's even approved the color.
I think I know what our next knitalong on the podcast is going to be. . . . . . .
