Look At Me Maw, I'm Knitting!!!

Yeepee, I have finally mastered it, I am knitting!
I have tried more times than I can remember now to knit and just never did get the hang of it. Well, here of late I had this urge to crochet me up a pair of socks.
I frogged sock pattern after sock pattern. All of them just felt so thick and not comfy to my foot AT ALL!
So I did it, I finally MADE myself to do it, I picked up some DPNS and just went at it! I was determined to learn.

After pulling out more times than I care to remember, LOL...
I finally got the hang of it and have done me up one sock so far. I think that all of the frogging and starting over really helped me so much.

I just have the toe to do now.

I love your knitted sock and for your first try, my gosh, you did a beautiful job. I have my first pair of knitted socks on my blog if you want to take a look. I like yours better! I voted for you, would you vote for me? Thanks so much. Katy

Thank you so much, I am finding it to be a lot of fun now that I have gotten the hang of it. I have crocheted for 30 years, thought I would give knitting a try. I have tried more than a few times and never got the hang of it. Thought I would give it another go and now, I am knitting. It feels natural and coordinated after I tried the Continental style.
Sure, I will vote for you and thanks for voting for me, I really apppreciate it :) I am off to visit your site right now :)
