Cat Bordhi, You Rock!!!!
OK, so I cheated and got Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles even before the sock knitting class on July 9. I dove right in and started using the techniques in the book, but instead of using #1, 2 or 3 needles, I used #9s and some heavy worsted weight. Wow! In one evening I had an abbreviated leg, a heel flap, turned the heel, and started the gusset! I was so surprised and excited. Well, of course that meant a trip to the LYS for sock yarn and at least two Addi Turbo Circulars. Over $100 later, I zoomed home to try my first sock!! My favorite yarn is the gorgeous and fun Regia rainbow-colored stuff. Look!
I guess you are wondering, "Is she still gonna take the sock knitting class?" Yeah, I guess so. If nothing else, I'll get better at DPNs, which must be useful for something, but right now I can't imagine what. Maybe mitten thumbs.
I heart you, Cat Bordhi! The feet of America thank you!!!
