So my friend Kate has finally talked me into starting a pair of socks. Never mind that I have never knit or croched anything other than a rectangle…never mind that I’m blond….never mind that I have strangely shaped feet. Never mind any of that. She is convinced that I can do this. Okay. Then we went yarn shopping and I purchased 2 skeins of sock yarn and 2 Addi-turbo size 2 needles that are 32″ circular. We’re not doing socks one at a time…no…we’re doing 2 socks on 2 circular needles AT THE SAME TIME. Whoa…hold me back.
This is us in a Starbucks shortly after the purchase winding the yarn (which she does so fast I wonder that I bought a ball winder…I should just use Kate) so that I could go ahead and cast on. The first photo is the first ball cast on and Kate is furiously winding ball #2.
