I shopped at a Knitting Store. All that yarn was begging to come home with me. I managed to purchase just one skein and new needles. I finished a scarf, but didn't like how it looked so I ripped it out and began a new one. I had hoped to finish it before winter ended. We've had a long, cold winter and it would have been handy. I'm nearing the end of the scraf. Kristie, who blogs at M.S. Doolittle Quilter has attempted to instruct me in knitting socks. I do great as long as Kristie is sitting next to me to answer my questions. When I get home and knit alone, I don't know what to do. I haven't given up. I will knit socks and even wear them!
