I started a pair of socks yesterday. Here's what I've got so far:
My sister held my hand through the one pair of socks I knitted and I'll admit, I've already called her to ask a question. But I'm happy that even though I really didn't know if I was doing it right, so far it looks like I'm moving in the right direction. It's only the toe for goodness sakes, but I'm still proud of myself. Knittinghelp.com is also an invaluable resource.
I bought this yarn up in Washington when Miss K and I were there for a visit, and taking a break from school woes. It's a fun and cheerful color changing yarn called green envy, a superwash wool yarn from Red Heart.
I'm hoping they will be relatively quick to make up since they are just sockies. Here's a picture of what I'm hoping they'll look like when I'm done:
