Lolly encouraged all 1797 of us to write about our socksual history. Well, to cut it short, since you have to read the other 1796 socktoberfest participants... this is my very first sock. It will forever remain a singleton, since it was a test sock, knit with some leftover Koigu. My friend Barbara taught me how to knit socks, only a few years ago, and I have been knitting for "a few" before that. I was terrified of the heel business. Imagine that! I made only two and a half pairs until Jan 2006, and 8 pairs since Jan 2006, with the inspiration of my knitting buddies at my local knitting group, Sit n' Knit NYC. What helps is the Internet explosion of hand made yarns, patterns and all of you; your work is great inspiration! It is also your fault I have a VERY long list of socks to knit. As I said before, the list will be reviewed and updated from time to time........I have decided to air my WIP, bring them all into daylight, so it will inspire me to finish them sooner rather than later... I dare you all to flash your WIP! No more hiding in the dark...
