I'm just getting started...

Hello, my name is Ginny and I am interested in so many things that I have difficulty completing a project. I am starting this blog to help motivate myself and others to do and to have something to show for all the effort. At the moment, I have unfinished knitting, quilting, and remodeling projects.

I'm going to begin with these socks. I believe I can finish these in about 4 days, so I set a goal of January 1st, 2008. I bought the yarn about 1 1/2 years ago and just didn't pick it up that often. I am actually going without socks most of the time because my feet swell and socks dig into my ankles. I need these socks! The yarn is Sockotta, "fruit" color, I believe. I am making a loose seed-stitch cuff and afterthought heels. These are my first toe-up on 2 circulars socks. I thought I might knit the heels prematurely but changed my mind when I realized the yarn wasn't available for the heels yet, so two shorter needles dangle and interfere with my work, but I will press on!

I won't speak yet of the sweaters started 20 years ago when I was a completely different size.
