Last night as I was knitting, I kept thinking how many of you had said you wish you knew how to knit, or you wish you knew how to knit socks. I’m not trying to be preachy or tell you what to do but if you want to learn to knit, or learn to knit socks, why aren’t you doing it? In this day, you can watch videos on the computer and learn how to do most anything you want to do. You can teach yourself to knit if you don’t have a friend who can teach you or a shop nearby where you can take classes. Please don’t go through life wanting to do something and never doing it! If you really want to knit socks . . make a commitment to yourself to do it . . this year! If you’ve tried before and failed, forget that . . forget everything you knew because it must’ve been wrong. Start fresh! You can do it!
If you have some physical limitations and you seriously cannot knit, that’s different but unless you’re physically unable to do it, if you want to do it . . stop talking about it and do it!
These are socks I finished last night. I started these while in Louisiana over a month ago. I started at least four pairs while I was there so I could get them all to different steps to show my knitting students. This is yarn I got from Hobby Lobby. I’m not sure how it will hold up and I can’t find the wrapper to even know the full content but I’m sure it’s mostly wool and some nylon. Because the yarn is thicker, the socks are very warm and I love them! I’m wearing them today! I think I realized I was going to like this yarn and stopped at the Hobby Lobby in Paris, TX on my way home and bought some more of this yarn in a different color but I can’t remember and haven’t even looked for it yet.
