Thanks to all, especially Tallguy, for your support during my blocking ordeal. Everything turned out beautifully.
I just noticed on Sunday that when I open Mozilla Firefox browser... the Ravelry logo appears next to both the Ravelry and the MenWhoKnit quick link buttons on the toolbar.
Right now I have 3 pairs of socks in the works. Of course two of those each have one completed sock. It's just the way I am.
I'm trying to get an image onto this post
I knit this last year for my son; I had to anticipate his growth to make it worthwhile. It fit him correctly only after washing and blocking (duh!).
Every year for Christmas I make my Mom some really warm comfortable socks. This year I went with a plain Cable sock that I found on Ravelry. I just finished the first one!
Well I just requested an invation to Ravelry.
Pray for me, boys...
