On Friday a box of yarn arrived from Webs - 3 one-pound cones of light sock yarn and 2 skeins of hand-dyed wool/polyamide sock yarn - just enough for a pair of short socks. I wound them on my make-shift cone winder, and last night made the first of a pair of Croc socks. I'm pretty proud of this first one because both the toe and the heel worked well. I made plenty of other mistakes, but they were all fixable. Now to make the mate.
We went to ArtiGras today here in Green Bay, mainly because I knew there would be fiber artists there and a cranker in particular. I learned a lot from her, even though she reported that she doesn't teach. Watching her for 15 minutes taught me a lot.
