Intro and knitting again
I'll start by saying howdy. I am usually over at the KT, and I see some familiar "faces". I was going to post on the on the needles for February, but thought I'd start a new thread. I am a self taught knitter. I started spinning wool and dog hair and DH asked what the heck I was going to do with all the yarn. So, I had to learn ot knit. I purchased Jacqueline Fee's Sweater Workshop and dove in. Told DH if I had know how much math was involved, I'd have chucked everything. But I soldiered on and made the practice tube, graduated to a sweater and then took a class on knitting socks. I'm hooked! I made 2 pair for me, one pair for the grandson, started one pair for DH, but had to quit cause they wouldn't fit. I quit for 2 years, stuff got in the way, but when I had to take care of DH after his by-pass surgery, I needed something to do with my hands besides eat. I had bought some cool yarn a while ago, but just started another pair for me and ran out. So I started another pair and finished those and am now on my third pair. I have always loved odd socks and now I can make my own. I enjoy reading about all the different things people are making and hope to contribute and share as I get better. Cheers!
