Yeah First Sock i completed it turned out okay i did it with circular
Magic Loop is soooooooooooooo easy. Turning the heel was a bit tricky
and my second sock is looking alot better but for the first sock ever
i think i did okay.. Its the winter sock pattern in the ML booklet.
I did have one little hole i must confess but you barely can see it. After ripping it out a few times i finally got the hang of it better than dpns thats for sure. Now im hooked
on sock yarn yep all sock yarn i went crazy and bought some to dye. Here is 2 skeins i bought from knitpiks very good price.

I bought some koolaid and guess what i did. I dyed and i call this one perty.
I also dyed the other one and i called it serenity.
It was fun the kids had fun and it was interesting how the colors came together.

It was a beautiful weekend here in Sc here is a pic this is the lake near our home. And the park we hang out its Finely park right smack in Columbia Sc.

Have a good week im going to be knitting
socks and here is a pic of my ripple so far.

As for projects i have ripped out my first sock i think 6 times it starts to look good then omg downhill.. So far i have done about 15 rows and its looks okay but you know practice is the best thing.

Did some more rippling and made some YoYo's nut much time with Easter cooking.
