A Year In Socks

One year two days ago, January 26, 2012, about this time in the evening (late to start anything)  I  decided to start knitting socks.  I had never knit socks before (my mother had)  and I had no actual pattern...but, I thought, I have feet, and feet will be my guide--plus various sources online and in a book I had recently acquired, Knitting Rules by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, otherwise known online as Yarn Harlot.  The hour had come--I knew if I put it off it might be days or weeks before I felt so strongly again.  And so began the adventure of the Year of Socks. nbsp; My first post about it was January 28, and had a picture of a tiny frill on the needles.
