Yep, this newbie knitter neophyte is knitting his first sock. Just using a Red Heart sport weight here. But I did buy a skein of Tofutsies and a couple skeins of Happy Feet Merino/Nylon blend for future socks >>insert maniacal laughter here<<.
It felt so cool to turn my first heel. I've only been knitting since January, but I think I'm really becoming addicted. I've been secretly building my private stash of yarns, needles and patterns. There is just so much I want to learn. I just hope I have enough time for it all.
I even quit smoking...not because my doctor said so...not because the surgeon general said so. Not because the emphysema and cancer patients I've taken care of said so. No, I quit smoking so that I will hopefully have more years to knit. Now I ask you guys is that sick or what? BTW knitting has been a great help while going cold turkey. I get the craving for tobacco and I pick up the needle...knitting needle that is.
The baby blanket is still moving along, and the lace weight feather and fan project is still alive too. The garter stitch scarf is for times when I really need something mindless to work on or there is a high probability that I'll be interrupted.
I just want to thank you all for your kind words and encouragement. I'm so glad I found this group.
