Adventures of a girl who purls

Watch me knit and purl and knit and purl and sometimes even spin!

If my Great-Grandmother knit socks on 4 double-pointed needles I'm surprised that she actually lived as long as she did. I think I know why....Because she gave up knitting socks on double point needles. I got down the cuff and then learned to knit them on two circulars. I have to say that is the easiest way to do it. If you are contemplating socks try it this way first. I'm not sure why anyone would torture themselves and do it any other way. I finished my first pair of sock. Just basic with an inch or so of ribbing on the top. I love them and I can't wait to make another pair (on circulars of coarse). My next pair will be the December pattern from the Six-sox yahoo group. I will start them as soon (okay maybe sooner) as I finish the two sweaters I started that I hoped to have done for Thanksgiving (they are now Christmas sweaters). Who knew 2 year olds had such long arms!!! I have one arm done and started on the second arm but I am chopping at the bit to start something else. Oh yeah..There was that crazy potholder in the middle there somewhere and the scarf made on the fly for my sil out of some funky fun stuff. Didn't even think to take a picture of it before I gave it to her.
