I have been talking a few people through their first attempts at sock knitting (FA in PA needs to send me some pictures). Here is an email I just received from my friend M. Carmel……
I offer attached pictures (in a most humble manner), for your perusal and
blessings…..thank you, oh, exhalted one…..your little knitting
grasshopper (prostrating herself in front of you)
Didn’t she do a great job?? Let’s hear it for the girl!! Let’s also remember that while she may indeed be my little knitting grasshopper, that in no way means I am an ancient Chinese man.
Love her toe! Looks great. I wonder if she has a toe bone?
Come on, how long has she been knitting? They look great. Are my eyes green???
Wax on. Wax off. Excellent socks.
WAY TO GO, M. Carmel! Love the socks. Thank heavens for Purling Swine, our Knitting Guru!
WooHooHoo!! Wonderful socks! Can’t wait to see FA’s, too.
Congrats on your first pair of socks!!!! I am sure Ann is a GREAT mentor!
Much admiration to both the grasshopper and the super talented and wise purlingswine for some wonderful socks!
Thanks for wonderful compliments from PS and her fellow knitters. For the record: No toe bone, but there are wide feet with good sturdy potato picking ankles!
Awesome socks! They look so warm and toasty. Way to go M. :)
