Knitting. Really???

So.  You all remember my post about knitting socks, right?  (click here to refresh your memory)

Well, I told me Mum the story.  She is, after all, the queen of all knitting.  Have I mentioned that before?  She is the one everyone goes to for help with their knitting.  

She, being the queen of knitting, said to me, "I'm going to send you something!"  Know what she sent?  Apparently, she took a class on knitting socks many years ago and never finished the pair.  So, that's what I completed sock...   
along with yarn, needles and pattern to complete the other one.  I had to laugh.  I mean, really.  How does she know I can even do this?  She told me she has faith in me...that knitting is like riding a bike.  

I suppose she could be right.  I should try to find photos of what I've made before.  Anyway...we shall see if she is right or not!

We are finally getting some snow.  From temps in the upper 40's yesterday to low 20's today...along with 3-5 inches of snow.  

It took me a long time to get home from work.  If the snow continues, tomorrow may turn out to be a snow day! 

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."Jeremiah 29:11

Funny bit!! You know where you can bail out if you want! It's a knitter's dream to only knit one sock. LOL

I will keep my fingers crossed for a snow day! Well I like that sock and I can't wait to see the other finished one. Just like everything else I know you will be great!

I have always wanted to learn how to knit socks. Do you use two needles or four? I will be interested in seeing the mate to your sock! Enjoy the snow, Julie.

I wish we would get snow, knew if i got new skis, that would keep us from getting any, haha.

Lots of luck and patience being sent your way! I think you'll do OK with the socks! Be careful should you venture out in the snow today.. the last snow we had was end of October... and I hope it stays away until next October! lol!
