How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

First socks finally finished

I know it's a little hard to believe but I finished another project.
What: My first try at knitting socks.
Pattern: Online SockClass tutorial.
Needles: Size 2,Inox,8",aluminum double points.
Yarn: Reynolds Swizzle superwash sock yarn in a color the 4 year old picked out. 1 skein with lots to spare.
It took how long?: At least a month.
Modifications: I decreased the suggested cuff length of 8 inches to 6 inches. I increased the suggested foot length of 7 inches to 8 inches. I didn't have any problems following along with the tutorial. For me that's amazing because I always encounter at least two WTF moments when reading a pattern.
