On the way back from the aquarium, we stopped at a couple of Thrift Shops. They were a little too expensive for me...
Then, we stopped at Knitting Addiction...Oh, my goodness!
They have some great yarns!
Darren & Thing 1 were touching EVERYTHING!
I was just trying not to drool on anything.
I have been wanting to learn how to knit socks and the owner, Jeanne Shrader has written some really great patterns.
I'm linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times...she has started "On the Needles" to help motivate herself and others to take time to knit.
Jeanne talked me into starting with a newborn sock since we both felt that I could have the cuff knitted up and get back to the shop for her to help me turn the heel before we leave on Sunday.
I haven't done much knitting on DPNs and I've ripped out the stitches at least 3 times since 5pm last night.
|This mornings "do over"...in K2, P2 ribbing.|
|...an hour later...|
Here is what I am working with...
The yarn is a sock yarn that I purchased on clearance at AC Moore. I figured it would be a good "practice" yarn and I wouldn't be wasting too much money on my first attempts at knitting socks.
So, I better get busy. Darren has offered to take me out to lunch (since I missed the seafood buffet on Wednesday) and back to Knitting Addiction this afternoon!
Stop over at Judy's and see what the other knitters are working on!
