I am currently knitting two sets of toe up socks but these are the only ones I am showing. I am currently two rows into the heel increases and they are going well. Everyday I am amazed at how much I am enjoying knitting and learning new things.
This, however, is not me learning but it is going to be “me” teaching. I have been asked to substitute teach the third of three lessons on “How to Knit Socks.” This is the class that I took in July-August that got me into this sock marathon. So what you see here is a little bit of the foot and most of the toe of a sock. I am supposed to show how to decrease the toe and then do the Kitchener closing. I sat in on some of the first two lessons, just to see how the two students have been doing, and I don’t think they will be far enough along to actually begin knitting the toe so I thought I would come with a visual aid along with a handout of my own making. The class is tomorrow morning and I am both excited and really nervous. It isn’t easy to teach something you have so recently learned but I am going to give it a go.
I will be starting a new hat this week. I have to make a new one for DH because the one I gave him for Christmas seems to have gotten to Sherlock, our sweet but destructive doxie, and that was that. I wouldn’t hustle to get a new one made but it has been really cold and he is bald so he needs a hat. And it has pleased me to see it on his head, I have to admit.
And now I will get off this computer, pick up my needles and knit a while. Gari
