Spinning and Learning to Knit Socks

I'm taking a class at the local yarn shop and my first sock is in the making. I had a difficult time getting started and I couldn't tell wrong side from right side but all these things you learn as you go so my first sock will look rather funny but I'm making a sock.

When I started spinning I bought the book Spin to Knit and in that book are a pair of socks I fell in love with. One of my goals once I learned to spin was learning to knit socks which has proven to be a long process since I didn't know how to knit to begin with. The first thing I learned to knit was a dishcloth and I've made many since but I sent one to my cousin and she requested coasters so I finished these sent them to her today.

I finished spinning the yarn in trade for my slippers and I love how it turned out. It still reminds me of a forrest.

Make sure you put your finished project on your blog so we can see it done.

My whole family enjoyed this. I love when I am able to find good recipes and articles on line. I get most of mine on They have really great searching capabilities and a lot of good articles. People link their own page to wacania so you can find some other great sites too. You should think about posting this article on it, I think a lot of people would enjoy it.
