Sock Knitting Lessons

I mentioned previously that I was teaching my friend and classmate Chelsea how to knit socks.  On Monday night we finished her first sample sock! Before...

After!

We used Kate Atherley's Top-Down Training Sock pattern. Kate's Knitty.com article, Socks 101, is also really good if you're looking for a simple equation to start knitting your own socks.

In other project progress, I finished my Homage Shawl yesterday afternoon and started on my Traveling Woman Shawl. I'm looking forward to this weekend when I can go through my new stash additions from the San Diego Yarn Crawl to pair up with patterns and to show you!
