This is what happens when you stop thinking about doing something you fear and just do it. Brian sent me this awesome sock knitting book (Thanks, Brian!) and since he was so gracious, I felt I had to at least try. I decided to just get my yarn, needles and book and sit down and follow the directions....no thinking....no analyzing....just do what the book said.
I TURNED A HEEL!!!!!! I can't believe I finally turned a heel! It was so not as hard as I thought...I always end up saying that when I finally do something. lol Now, it's time to pick up stitches and I think this scares me more than turning the heel did but I will at least try.
I have no idea if the sock will even be wearable but I'm understanding what's happening so I know that I will be able to knit socks after this. I have wanted to do this for so long so this is just an awesome feeling for me. I don't know if I will work on it more today....maybe later tonight when things quiet down.
Thanks for all the encouragement I've gotten about trying to knit socks....you all are such great motivation! Wish me luck with the picking up stitches....another new thing for me...only ever done this once I think.
I'm using the yarn Aunt Kathy sent to me....they may not be wearable but they will be bright and pretty. lol
