My first sock

Okay, thanks to my fab new knitting club, Lynea, Alyssa, Claire, and Adrienne, I have gotten through the scary part of a sock for the first time. In a crazy/coincidental turn of events, a couple of weeks ago, I posted a comment on the Knit and Tonic blog regarding working moms vs. stay at home moms (I've been both, I liked both, I know both, I respect both!) At any rate, Lynea clicked on my comment, saw that I lived in the same hometown as her (!) and invited me to join her knitting group. I went last night and it turns out Lynea lives next door to my 6 year old's best friend (!) and works in an office where I have had several meetings (!) I was just at the point in my first sock ever where I had to pick up stitches along the gusset and let me tell you, I had no idea how to do that. So the gals in the club gave me pointers and I did it! I am so excited, knitting socks is so addictive. By the way, I am knitting these with Socks that Rock in Red Rock Canyon.

Help me move this button!

Does anyone know how I can get this flippin' button over to the sidebar? Please?

Joined a swap

I'm so excited, I joined my first swap! The August Birthday Swap: it's perfect for me as 1) I have an August Birthday and 2) it doesn't require that I actually finish knitting anything. Ha!
