Well, I had quite the surprise when I logged into blogger this morning! They said I could switch now...really...and if I didn't want to do it NOW... I could go back to my dashboard, but I would only have one more time to go back and switch. Well, I went for it and it went through. I really didn't think anything would happen. I've hit that button so many times I couldn't even tell you the number! Guess they were sick of me :) I didn't even have to unsubscribe from my Mason-Dixon KAL and Zimmermania. I can still post to these blogs, but they will remain in the old version until the owners switch. I am hoping and crossing my fingers when I publish this page everything will be fine.
The other good news I have is that I finished my other sock. Now I have a handknitted pair of woolease socks, perfect for snowy days when I wear my duck shoes! No more cold feet for me.
If I said the second sock was knitted without a hitch I'd be lying! The first one went so smoothly that I surprised myself. The second one, well not so good. My first hint of trouble was decreasing the gusset. I made the mistake of doing this while watching "24". That was my first mistake. I ended up with one too many stitches on one side. Being the perfectionist (wanna be) I figured I better rip it back and fix the mistake. Ok, did that and then did fine until I hit the toe...kitchener graft. Well, I thought I could do it...do the graft with out looking at the instructions. Well, I was WRONG! That had to be ripped out, too, and that wasn't a very easy task. Now it's over and done with and I learned a lesson...don't get too comfortable yet with sock knitting ...I have a long way to go and a lot still to learn. Good thing I picked up my own copy of Sensational Knitted Socks (ACMoore- 50 % off coupon) last Tuesday!
Happy knitting :)
