A quickie post you dirty, dirty minded bloggers! I had wanted to wait to share this with you when it was fully completed, but the flood carried away my progress and I am dying to show you what I have recently (kinda) crossed off my Knitting Bucket List (or my KBL if you wish:)). So here it is friends and neighbors, my new knitting obsession!
First things first, I casted on and held my breath.
When the cuff was complete – I did a happy dance. I may have had to start a few times and frog a few rows, but it was so worth it to see something on those DPNs.
Then it was time to knit for eight inches. Oh the sheer delight in seeing the pattern emerge!
I was nervous about making the heel because I had never done it. It was soo much easier than I expected!
Now was the time to shape the heel. Oh, the feeling of seeing something that looked a bit like a sock. Glorious!
After shaping the heel it was time to shape the instep. Guys….it kinda looks like a sock! As you all know after you shape and knit the instep, the only thing left to do is shape the toe.
Friends and neighbors we have a sock! A real sock! Now all that is left is to make its mate!
I’ve got to tell you friends and neighbors, it is a bit like a fairy tale. I’ve (almost) crossed something off my knitting bucket list. It feels so good. Have a great weekend!
