Non-knitters just don't get it

"Why," one recently asked me, "would you spend 8 hours on Sunday knitting a sock when you could just buy them?"

Piffle, followed closely by pish (and maybe with a tosh thrown in for good measure).

Anyway, the point is, I completed one of the toe-up, short-row-heeled socks.

On Easter Sunday, to celebrate the holiest of holidays, I sat my rotund (yet sexy) bottom on the couch next to hubby's flat boy-butt, and knit while he watched his cartoons for about the eight millionth time.

It was SO fun. I used the figure eight cast-on and just a basic wrap and turn short row. The next one goes on the needles this week AND I'll be buying a new camera courtesy of the government (or rather, what they are giving us back). Hopefully, pictures will follow.

And I want to say we are getting such a GREAT response about Betty Crafter.
