Knitting - The Project That's Filling all My Sketch Time

Originally uploaded by ktes750
Every spare second has been filled with knitting for the last two weeks, or at least that's how it feels. I have learned to knit after a 20-some year break. I'm taking a class and it's wonderful because I'm actually learning all the basics besides the actual knit and purl stitch, like how to bind off and read a pattern. Next week we are to learn how to do cable stitches. I've finished two dish clothes and am working on a third, started a scarf (pink/purple) and have a large practice piece that is a pattern similar to a rib stitch that I will probably finish soon and give to my daughter as a doll afghan.

I'm having a great time and am really hoping that the shop where I'm taking lessons will offer a sock project class soon. I really want to learn to knit socks. That was on my goal list for this year and I have purchased the supplies already.

Hello! I just stumbled upon your blog this morning--good for you for getting (back) into knitting. You'll be knitting those socks in no time. They aren't nearly as scary/complicated as people think. :) Good luck!
