That may be an exaggeration, for my first sock anyway. I have been working on these socks for...well.....over a year now.....off and on.....with the help of my friends at Gauge Knit, http://www.gaugeknit.com/ , several books,Youtube and a DVD. You can see that I have started my second sock and I am anticipating that it will go much quicker. I can't remember what yarn I am using. Just remember that I was inspired by Jane Brocket, http://www.yarnstorm.blogs.com/ . There is no design involved, just straight knitting, as the yarn makes the pattern as you knit. Very nice. I will make a minor adjustment to my second sock, but all in all it has been a lot of fun and I have learned a lot about knitting and circular needles. I also have quite a bit of sock yarn in my stash now, so I have to keep going! Happy knitting!
