Maybe I will not give up on socks afterall!

I think I have figured out working with dpns. I am attempting allison's ankle sock from blue blog patterns.

Here is where I am so far:

I am turning the heel using the wrap method. Its challenging but I think I will get it. I think the key for me is good lighting and energy. I had been attempting the socks after a hard day's work in the evening. The lighting in my place is dim. Notice I take most of my pics outside! Old, tired eyes coupled with dim lighting is not a good combination when trying to make your first pair of socks. So, I got some sleep and tried it again in the daylight and its going well. I might need a few prayers from you guys to get through the turning of the heel!

Here is progress photos on my other projects.

Oh, don't give up on the socks! Once you get past the first inch or so, it becomes much easier to maneuver the needles.

Nice other FO's, too.

Have you ever tried socks on 2 circs? I have an awesome link if you haven't. Whoever the designer was that did this pattern should be worshipped!!! It is the 2 at once and it is amazing! Let me know and thank you for the comment on my blog!!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. Sorry to hear you are going through issues, too. For what it's worth, Kris' first successful pregnancy came after she sumbitted an application for adoption, and the same with this most recent one. My mother would say "What is meant to be, will be." No comfort, I know. I never had kids, so my 4-legged furry hooligans are my babies!


P.S. Don't give up on socks. Once it "clicks" you won't be able to stop. If you have any questions, email me at dwood333 AT hotmail DOT com.
