I DID IT!.. First Ever Socks

I finally finished my first ever pair of socks!! They were done toe up with Knit Picks Essential Tweed in the Marina colorway. I used 2 size 3 circulars-next time will use 2's. Fit is pretty good, there are a few mistakes, mostly just stupid ones.

Am thankful for the Queen Kahuna Crazy Toes and Heels book. It gave me enough confidence to start knitting the socks (although I only did one at a time!), but I found it a little confusing to follow. Now I am hooked! Am waiting for some new Knit Picks needles to start the next pair!

Finally.. A Finished Project To Post

This was a lovely, easy scarf pattern that I found on the internet. It is the Wave Scarf. Used Noro Blossom in Color 16. The pictures don't do this one justice.

Local Yarn Store

All right, I am totally disgusted. Made a special trip to my local yarn shop for Tofutsies and a knitting gauge-since I have mixed up all of my wonderful Knit Picks circs. Of course, no Tofutsies... and even worse, they had never heard of it! My knitting gauge, alas, I was told to go to JoAnn Fabrics. This is why the Internet is my favorite way to shop!
