I have completed my first sock (and also my first knitting project EVER!) and I am soooooo proud of myself. I’m about 1/2 way through with the 2nd to finish out the pair.
My family has been none-too-impressed with my knitting- UNTIL NOW!!! I showed them my sock! My teenaged daughter was genuinely shocked and said, “Put it on! OMG, I want a pair!!” Hubby’s interest was directed to Civil War re-enacting socks and we even did some research together in books he has.
My family is now officially on board with my knitting!
