Woe Is Me!

WELL......since I have no pictures to post of my knitting....(it is too sad...didn't want to depress anyone!). I thought I would post this picture.....as this is pretty much all I have of my socks....a couple of balls of yarn and my sticks!! I have ripped and re-knit the infamous socks so MANY, MANY times my Wildefoote yarn is in shambles....shredded as if ripped by wild animals!! After some encouraging words from Emily (a.k.a. yarn miracle, did I also mention I don't know how to add links?).....I am not giving up!! Besides.....it is a matter of PRIDE.....my DH upon seeing me pull out my knitting seems to take great delight in asking me...."oh...is that another pair of socks you are knitting?".....knowing FULL well by the many "knit fits" I have thrown it is STILL the same pair!!!! I think I'll knit him some really "colorful" socks (he's color blind)....then hide all his other socks, forcing him to wear them to work as punishment....Hee! Hee! Hee! Ah...revenge is SWEET!!!!! I feel empowered already!!!!

I can't say enough about Emily.....how kind she has been to this fumbling beginner!!! We have shared many "knitting consultations" not to mention all her encourgement!!!

I was able to get to the YS to have my vest pattern written out....so at least that is one positive thing.....oh....and I am working on a baby blanket.....so maybe things aren't so bad after all!!

Hope to have the weekend free to knit and hopefully have something worthy of posting Monday!

Don't give up! In a year, you'll look back and be amazed at how far you have come!

:( I'm sorry sorry about your socks. Maybe you should try your first pair with larger yarn and needles? Don't give up! I like the idea of making your color blind husband wear the socks... hehehehe

Bigger yarn and bigger needles? Does Playskool make anything like that? LOL!! I DEFINITELY need beginner tools!! WHEN...not if I make my DH his "colorful" socks I'll be sure to post a pic!!

Socks can be really frustrating (ask anybody)! Working on something else for a while sounds like a good plan - I really want to see your vest finished!
