Thank you all for your kind words yesterday! I'm still not 100%, but I'm hanging in there!
My Tuesday night knitting group decided to do a Knit-a-long (KAL) to learn toe up sock construction. Several in the group knew how to do this and many (me included) did not. So will picked a pattern, we all went to our respective homes, searched our stash for the perfect yarn, and cast on Tuesday night. There were the group learns....huddled together, talking, demonstrating, redemonstrating, consulting printed out directions with pictures.....then there was the group (using the term loosely) that each worked individually, consulting with each other at key moments, then returned to intently work alone....they weren't anti-social just focused...then there was the rebellious group....we don't want to make socks or at least not what everyone else is working on! What group would you be in? Me?
I was in the individual group....consulting as needed! No judgement on any of the groups....we all learn differently...I appreciate and respect that....it was just fun to see everyone at work learning/teaching new skills! My sock is happily progressing (I did 64 instead of 60 stitches) and so far it fits! I love that about toe up socks...you can try them on as you go! We'll see how the heal goes!
