Day two on my blogging experience. I have now turned the heel on my sample sock and am knitting the foot. Tonight we had a dye workshop at the Salem Fiber Arts Guild. I will post a picture when I have the yarn rinsed in a couple of days. I used lots of magenta, blue and purple on a lovely cotton yarn.

This picture shows me ( on the left facing ) my sister Sue in front and sister Linda on the right. We had this picture taken at the Sewing Expo in Puyallup, Washington a couple of years ago.

What did I get myself into Now?

As this is my first time blogging, I am a bit intimidated.
I am learning to hand knit socks the magic loop way and so far it is lots of fun. I am way too slow, so this first baby sock may take me a week or so. At this rate an adult sock will take about a month. It is a good experience. I do love new challenges.
