Long time no see!

Yay!  We’re mostly all moved in.  I’ve been slow about getting everything unpacked because, well, really what’s the hurry?  And right now the living room is a royal mess from our weekend trip to Seattle.  I just threw it all on the floor and have to still put it away.  But it’s nice to be in our own little space now 🙂

I have learned FINALLY to knit socks toe up.  I’ve been trying this off and on for a few years now, but just haven’t ever been able to “get it down” very well.  The cast ons were causing me problems, and just didn’t “click” with me, the heels were confusing the you know what out of me, and I would just get frustrated and give up.  Until now.  I found the Turkish Cast on, which is easier than breathing.  And after some practice the short row wraps have become not quite so bad for those heels 🙂  Anyway, after searching around in the blogosphere, I found a ton of info about toe up socks, and I thought it would be fun to start a group for just such socks!  If you’d like to joine, PLEASE DO!  It’s a yahoo group, so you’ll need a yahoo account, which is free of course.  You can find it at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/toeupsocks/ Please share the word! 🙂  The more people the better 🙂
