Knitting socks…..sock knitting…

Okay so I’m taking the plunge. I KNOW this sounds silly but I’m REALLY nervous about starting to knit socks. I have the yarn, I have the patterns, I have the needles BUT I’m scared to start. The yarn is so beautiful, what if I mess it up. Man, I’m a loser…….

So here is the sock yarn crying out to be socks.

And here is the most gorgeous cotton that I’m going to make into a skirt. I bought it at the Ewe Asked for it annual 35% off birthday sale….my only impulse buy there that day. I can’t WAIT to knit this up….I’m thinking size 4.5 circulars……mmmmmm……

    You’ll be just fine re the socks. (Not really, but that’s what everyone said to me, so I thought I’d continue the ruse.) Just make sure you find the right way to do the damned gusset, because that’s the ONLY place anyone ever has any trouble. (See blog entry on to see major problem area.)

    And GOOD LUCK!
