I finally figured it out! I had a lot, A LOT of help from a friend of mine who held my hand through what I thought were the scariest parts. One down, one to go!
I started here:
And ended here! (Jacob was a willing model even if they were a bit small)
I feel pretty darn galvanized by the whole process! Not nearly as hard in most places as I thought. And of course, I cast on the second one right away so I wouldn’t forget. I also enjoyed working with my own yarns, something that is rare for me.
So there it is, more sock knitting madness to come soon, I’m sure!
I also purchased a new camera last night (the sock photos were not taken with it), I can’t wait to get some yarns twist set so I can start taking photos!
