Some Knitting!

Been doing something new for me----knitting two socks at a time on 41" circular needles-----this has been quite a challenge, but I did it! They aren't perfect by any means, but they do look like children's socks and they were done 2 at a time!
The first picture shows the book I used which had very clear directions and pictures, if you paid attention to every word, which I sometimes would run on ahead and that wouldn't work out very well-------------I started over several times!!! Also shown in the picture is the needle(s) I used. They were made from bamboo and very nice to use.

The second picture shows the socks. They look a little different to me---sock two has a little more shape to it, don't know how I did that, but they give the "appearance" of socks.Don't know if granddaughter could wear them or not!

Anyway I'm glad I did them and probably will do another pair, since I have the yarn for them, this next yarn I have is a bit smaller, but says same gauge as first-------we''ll see what happens. But first I want to finish my challenge quilt which is coming along nicely!

Let quilting (and knitting?) help you make someone smile!
