One Small Step for Knitter-Kind, One Giant Leap for Me.

So, rather than hit the pub, I was a good girl yesterday and hung out at my LYS after work. (I only bought 3 skeins of Lamb's Pride - for Fuzzy Feet - I swear I needed it! Well, one skein anyway.) Well, conversation ensued, and again a question was posed to me that I had always answered with a "let me knit a few more first". Socks. She wants me to teach a sock class. Only one student - that really wants to learn the 2 circ method - and she's a beginner. OK, one student, I think I can handle that. But still, I gotta teach. Knitting. Um, wow. So yeah, I agreed. We'll see how it goes, then maybe in the future, I can do it formally with more actual students. The lady that normally teaches socks, does only DPNs and doesn't really support the 2-circ method. So, Cristi to the rescue! Eek! Wish me luck!

Good for you! Then you can teach me next, because I have tried in vain a few times to teach myself from Cat Bordhi's book!

A sock teacher! Hurrah! Good luck! I know you'll do fine. You may surprise yourself with how much you know.

Cool! You're already a cyber-sock-mentor....I think you helped me solve why I keep getting so holes on my heel seams! You'll do great!

Hooray! Yay for Adamas! We'll cast on together then!

I haven't ever worked from a chart before I got this pattern. In the lace forum over on Knitty there's a post I made about how I was chartarded and how I solved the problem. (I just made up my own chart and knit from it, I <3 charts now!)

I'm still scared. But thanks. I just read through it, and I think the enlarging and coloring in the boxes might help me out big time.
