Look! A Sock!

I want to thank everyone for the positive support regarding the woman at my LYS. I might not be the fastest or most experienced knitter, but I thought I deserved a bit better than that. Luckily, when I went to my local SnB, the attitude was much better than at the LYS. All of the ladies were simply wonderful. They were nice and didn't base their opinion of me on the number of WIPS I have or the amount of yarn I own. I can't wait to go back next week! Yea! I am making friends outside of school! ::clap clap::

I worked on my sock at the SnB and it is coming along nicely (I have worked on it since this picture, but I have been too lazy to get my camera...there is just more leg pattern). I am super excited that this project is portable and it can come with me when I am waiting for meetings to start and participants to show up! Is there something wrong with me since I am really excited that I can knit before classes and meetings? This is something I couldn't do at work, so I am super pumped that I can knit when I want to now. :)

Oh, before I go, I must say, "HI KURT!" I promised him that I would drop his name on the very famous silverarrowknits blog, since he helped work on the Give It a Whirl Bag a while back.

  1. I am so glad you had fun. That woman from the LYS (Send me her name and store, b/c I want a chat with her!) obviously does not know how to treat customers. I remember when I was working part time to help out the owner of my favorite LYS, and a big tall guy the size of a football lineman walked in the store (think George Foreman!). He avidly CROCHETED baby blankets as his hobby for charity. I'd like to see how she would have handled HIM!

  2. That sock looks great! Please post details of yarn and pattern, as I can't be the only one who wants to knit a pair for themselves.

  3. If I knit my way through medical school (literally) - why not try knitting during those meetings. The key is knitting without looking at it. That's the key. And then you'll get SO much done.
