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.

Glad you joined our knitting group!

As for adding a button to your sidebar...in your blog template, find the area that contains your sidebar stuff, like archives, previous posts and then put the html code there. It is not a bad idea to cut and paste your whole template code to Word or something before you start messing with stuff so that if something gets totally messed up you can always go back to how it was.

See you Wednesday:)
