O C D S O C K
Sweet lord, I have started my first sock. I have just turned the heel, my fingers hurt, my eyes are twitchy and I have a whole new appreciation for tube socks 10 pair for 3 bucks at Wal-mart. I've been told there are a great many people who actually enjoy knitting socks, this has got to get easier. I think the skill I'm lacking here is picking up stitches. I've never been especially good at seeing exactly where I'm supposed to pick up and I never seem to have as many stitches there to be picked up as the pattern seems to think. The heel decreases may also have problems but I imagine that has more to do with my TV boyfriend John Krasinski distracting me. Well, onward sock, while I've still got the obsessive compulsive drive going on.
I loaned out my camera so no progress pictures, instead I'll share my TV boyfriend.
