Uglee socks



My friend, Carole has encouraged(bullied??) me to learn to knit socks. Not having done any knitting in lo, these many years, I was hesitant, but determined. So here are my first efforts and they are far from beautiful, but wonder of wonders, they fit! Now I'm so flush with my success (Heh-heh!) I'm signing up for a class in sweater knitting! Is that courageous....or just fool-hardy? Carole you've created a monster...or maybe worse.
