I'm finally knitting. Knitting is scary. Many people don't know this. Here's the yarn that my good friend Annie sent me, all the way from Massachusetts. It's massive! It'll make a few socks, I'm thinking!
I was down at Hunter's house, Hunter, the master knitter. She lent me some DPNs -- double pointed needles, so that I could make socks. This is the mass of chaos that exists when you use DPNs:
I cast on, and forged ahead, in spite of the mess on those needles. And eventually, something began to emerge ... See those double rows of knits and purls?
And a few rows later, you can actually see the ribbing that will go around the ankle. Phew! It's becoming a sock!
I'm now further along, into the knitted section. More photos to follow.
