Well I made some progress on my first ever sock. It took me awhile but I was able to keep up with the homework for both weeks and am now done with this weeks. My final class is on Monday.
I decided turning the heel is easy it is that stinking going up the side gusset thing that had me confused, but I did get it. Of course we were in class so I had help...just hope I can do the second one with out mishap.
I was working on the decreases the other day just cruising along decreasing, and decreasing, and decreasing..then realized if I keep decreasing I won't have a leg opening...duh...light bulb moment. Well for a newbie it is really hard to unknit...I can unknit the purls and the knits but those stinking knit 2 together and those SSK are just a pain...I only had to rounds I had to undo..thank goodness for the light bulb moment (so I didn't have to do like 10 rounds). I don't think I did it completely right but I can only see one small mistake and I am content with it. I don't have any holes and it looks good for my first pair.
I then was knitting away thinking I had to get to 9 inches for the instep..decided to try the sock on and really I could have stopped about 1/2 inch back but I am good. I only ended up needing 6 inches so that was good. I have a hole in my finger from the needles. I'm gonna have to pull out the finger protectors for sure.
Hope to get the second sock started tonight.
For more needle Friday head on over to Judy's.
Have a great weekend everyone....I am off to work then the doctors. Tomorrow is school shopping, this is the year both boys decided to outgrow everything...ugh..
