Envious

I wish I could have gone to Rhinebeck...That's all I've been reading about for the past week and I'm sure that's all I'm going to hear about for a while...Poor me and everyone else who didn't get to go.
I cast off (casted off?) these the other day. They are for my size 7 feet, two at a time, magic- loop, toe- up with Trekking # 110, I think. I just did a 2x1 ribbing until I got up to where my calf roughly started and then increased into 2x2 ribbing. I'm pretty sure I'll be giving these to either my brother or sister for christmas...We all have the same sized feet at the moment.

Next weekend, I'll be teaching my grandma how to knit socks. She taught me how to knit and purl and I've learned the rest from everyone here on the internet. I'll probably get some decent pictures of the socks next weekend too.

I swear. Leftovers has been almost done for a couple weeks. I just have to do the ribbing around one armhole and then I have to sew the neck ribbing. But I might rip that out and add another six stitches to make it a bit stretchier. Then I have to weave in end. Maybe I can have a knit photo shoot next weekend. I hope so. And with real pictures...I hate my webcam.

Rhinebeck wasn't all that great - don't feel bad. At least you didn't throw out your back while there (like I did).

These socks turned out so beautifully - I love the colorline you chose! Great work! And I'm really looking forward to seeing your "Leftovers" finished! Happy Knitting!

Teaching your grandma how to knit socks? Well, isn't THAT a reversal of the norm! Good for you!
