Magic Stripes...

I started a new knitting experience last night...Socks! I have wanted to make socks since the day I started knitting, but the thought of 5 knitting needles at once has always intimidated me. I ran across the Lion Brand Magic Strips yarn (which makes strips when you knit...way groovy) and knew that I had to try the sock pattern on the label.

Last night I was actually able to go shopping without Amelia (She stayed home with her dad and there were no complaints from dad! Amazing!). I found all my supplies and started on the pattern. Let me tell you, knitting with 5 needles is hard! I finally got the hang of it last night about midnight but had to stop since it was way past my bedtime.

I'm looking forward to getting back to it and making socks for everyone!! :)

I can't even imagine mastering two needles let alone five. I can't wait to see these socks.

Actually once you get used to the subtle differences and can knit with 2 needles...it's not so bad.

So when are we going to have a knitting circle?

Hmm I'll have to get back to you on that. I would really love to have one though. Once I get better with knitting. ;)
