And they're off....

The socks are started! I am using a pattern that my LYS uses for their easy sock class. I will post the name when I think of it! I took the sock along to my friend's house last night and she said "Hey - it already looks like part of a sock!!" That was VERY encouraging!! She is the friend that APPRECIATES my hobby - unlike the friend who has of late been picking on my hobby!

I am still (I know - it's day 3!) still working on the 10 rows of ribbing - it is taking me a while to be comfortable with all those dpns!!!

I actually haven't knit yet today - so hopefully when I sit down to do that I will get to teh leg part of the sock! When I do I will try to figure out how to post a picture, too!
