Working on it!

What great pictures those are!  I'm getting inspired to start knitting - after I wind my Anne yarn into a ball.  I know, I know, I've been negligent in starting knitting, only because I've been working so incredibly hard to create a sign for the shop inviting people to join this blog.  I managed to finish it last Thursday just in time to scoot down to Kinko's (my inkjet just doesn't get the colors the way that Kinko's does), log onto my e-mail, turn the color printer to "on," and print off 3 copies.  It's up with these photos posted to it, and I must say it is quite colorful and cheerful.  The file is a little too big to load onto the blog, but if you're in the store you're sure to see it.

And most of all, hopefully it will bring new bloggers to this site and we can all trade stories of how much fun we've had knitting these socks!

Halfway there!

Here it is--Annetrelac sock #1. I love it, and it fits great. After the entrelac leg section, the pattern calls for increasing back to 72 stitches, but I knew that would be way too big for my tiny feet. I increased to 56 stitches (a guess, really, since I didn't do a gauge swatch for this project) and that was perfect.
