On Monday night, I met with some friends at Panera's and, I finished my first pair of knitted socks. Yeah! Back in March my friend offered to teach me how to knit a pair of socks. I was skeptical that a pair of socks could be made by these hands. My knitting skills that I learned back in elementary school days are just that, basic. She challenged me to teach her to tat a split ring and she would teach me how to knit a pair of socks. While I told her she had the harder end of the deal, she was confident, and we agreed. It took several weeks and some hand holding, knitting and tinking (un-knitting my mistakes) to get to this week. My lesson for her on the split ring took all of about 20 minutes. Now she just needs to practice to become proficient, and I have a wonderful pair of socks. A great deal around.
