You are looking at the 92nd member of the 52 pair plunge knit along! I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So in honor of this accomplishment, I give you the following.
I did this last night.
Sans ball winder. I was SO proud of myself for creating my very own center pull ball without a ball winder. All I needed was a pill bottle, my knees, and my yarn. Pretty crafty, if I do say so myself.
My sheep seemed to like the new ball.
So then I started knitting. And I knitted what I thought was a toe. I sat it down last night, went to bed, and then this morning I picked it back up. Luckily at some point, I realized that what I had was not a toe at all. I was doing the increases all wrong. (Notice a pattern with me and my increase issues??) So, this is what my needles looked like this morning.
So I sat down, TIVO remote in hand and I watched the knitty gritty episode with Cookie. I watched her do it, then I casted on....Tivo on pause....then she knitted the first row....Tivo on pause while I knitted my first row.....you get the idea. So....this is what I have now.
I give you.......my very first toe a la toe up socks!!
Not too shabby, huh? On to the lace. I'm scared. But I am woman.....I will knit....and I won't be afraid.
Meanwhile.....back on the farm. This is the newest development in my house. 21 baby chicks. I'm a redneck.
