Here it is! My very first sock! I am now, officially, a sock knitter!
I love it! I think I did pretty well. It wasn't too hard, and I can't wait to finish the second one. I'll show you some close ups of the toe and the short row shaping.
Not to shabby for my first time, eh?! I love the colors and can't wait until I can wear them as a pair! Socks Rock!
Alright lest talk about this wallet. I've never made one before, never seen a pattern for one, so I'm kinda flyin by the seat of my pants! I did the swatch and came up with a design (with some insight from Amy). Today I did the math, I sure hope I did it correctly. Its been a while since having a math class:-) If it comes out half the way I'd like it to, I think it is going to look really cool! I'm writing the pattern down as I go, so if it actually does turn out, I might be sharing a pattern with you all! Or maybe even sending it to knitty.com or a magazine. But I don't want to get my hopes up, so I'm just rooting for my sisters roommate, Laura to like it. I love making others happy! Anyways here is what I have so far:
nothing much... I think I'll wait to show you any more pictures of it until its finished.
