Getting a leg up with Lee


Believe me, if I can give birth to a sock, anyone can . . . and it doesn’t even take nine months — more like three weeks. I’m still in awe of how The Yarn Harlot procreated, labored and birthed all in one day (see my earlier blog post). But then, I guess harlots get a lot of practice.

Just between you and me, I’m a little worried about this sock. It’s loud, and it may not sleep through the night. But, just like any new born, it’s soft, warm and cuddly. I won’t mind.

Off to nurse a glass of wine,

    CONGRATS on your sock!!! Socks, frankly, scare me :). All I can handle, knitting-wise, are scarves and hats. Oh, and I guess I made a cowl-thing too.

    Thanks for finding my blog! Looking forward to keeping up with yours….love it already!! 🙂

  2. Rachelyn,

    It’s an honor to have you here! I love your blog and look forward to keeping up with yours as well.

    PS: Nenah Galati’s How to Knit Socks on Two Circular Needles DVD really makes it easy for me.

    Lovely! Congratulations! Can’t wait to hear whether the sock gets a twin (identical or fraternal).

    Hi Lee: WOW what a gorgeous child…I mean sock!! You have done an excellent job; and I know that your feet are going to be so happy feeling so warm and stylish and colorful!! I would suggest that you don’t try and create an identical twin, but rather let the yarn unravel as it will, though you will have “matching” socks they will not be identical but rather whimsical and free, and liberated, just like you!!!
    Oh Happy Day!
    More “Happy Knitting” wishes sent your way,

    • Nenah,

      I am so very honored to have you post a comment here. Thank you!

      You are an amazing facilitator. I felt comfortable knitting a sock every step of the way. Having the DVD really helped, and I am very excited about sharing the information.

      I will say it again: If I can learn to knit a sock, anyone can.

    • Nice to know that I don’t have to worry about identical twins. Thank you!

    Is the sock Dry Clean Only?

    If so, I can recommend an excellent dry cleaner. He’s out of the biz right now, but for you, he’ll make an exception. 🙂
