Empty This Week

All projects in various stages of incomplete-ness...and I am struggling to 4-year old proof my apartment before my friend and her daughter visit for the long weekend...so I leave you to enjoy a photo of the lovely waterfall on the Wayside Inn property, which we visited a few weeks ago:

Hi,

I just read the article that you wrote in Interweave Knits magazine. I absolutely loved it! I taught myself to knit several years ago. I lost interest in it, so I stopped. I recently picked up my needles again, and I am loving it. I have 3 projects on my needles now. 2 scarves and socks.
I was sitting at home one day surfing the net, and I came across a site where a woman was knitting socks. I was automatically intrigued...drawn in by the colors. So, I went to Jo-Ann's and I purchased 4 packs of sock yarn, and some double pointed needles, and set out on the task of knitting some socks. I must agree with what you said in your article, "The thing about knitting socks is--it's hard...until it's easy." Truer words have never been spoken. I had so much trouble holding 4 needles at once, and working with such small yarn. But, I am progressing. I am determined to finish my first pair of socks, and continue on to make many more.
Your article was an inspiration to me. Thanks so much!!!

I too read the article and was inspired to knit socks, having always wanted to do so. Yes, I got the needles and yarn...then chickened out and started two new afghans...my comfort zone! But I will attempt the socks one day I am sure. Just not sure when that day will be ...
