Picture problems.

I'm having trouble posting pics. My brain must be fried from the 3 day weekend, which was full from my daughters soccer tournament. I can't seem to understand the directions from Please help.


I did it!!

What you may ask... I finished my first pair of socks!! I used the Joan's Wool Ease Sock Pattern from Lion Brand. I must say they are more like slipper socks than socks that you would actually wear with shoes. I used wool ease yarn and size 7 and 9 needles. Yes 7&9 needles, what does that tell you... they are extremely thick...esp for 80 degree Southern California weather. I will try my next pair with sock yarn and smaller needles. The pattern was good for a beginning, I these were meant to be a test pair, to see if I could actually do it. Overall , I'm happy with the results. Here's a picture... Hopefully this works.

Since I started knitting in March, I've completed 3 scarves, 1 (obligatory) poncho, 1 cap for my son and now my socks. My next project will be tempting from Wish me luck.

My first post

I've finally decided to dive into the blogging world. I've been reading knitting blogs for the past month and I've become so inspired by everyone's projects. I'm a newbie when it comes to knitting as I only started to knit in March2005. As soon as I figure out the lay of the land I'll post pictures of my first attempts.
