One of my goals for 2017 was to learn to knit socks. I found a lady who taught me ... I went to her home a few afternoons this summer. This pair was with old wool from my grandma's. Not quite the same gray and they may be scratchy but I'm still happy. Now I have to start a 2nd pair right away so I don't forget how to do them! My daughter bought me wool for at leat 4 more pairs... so I'll be busy this winter :) I'll be making Christmas gifts for next year!
