Knitting Socks

Now I know why women who knit live to be a crotchety but sane 102 years or more. Knitting has got to be good for your brain. I have either fired more neurons than I ever have in my life or caused a majority of my brain cells to commit suicide in order to escape my concentration.
But finally.....
After numerous starts, corrections, and scrutinizing, I have tediously hashed out what appears to be "elf boots". At least that's what my girls call them.
Aren't they cute....
and cozy....
and fun....and already taken over by my 9 year old daughter. I've already started the next pair....knitting can be addictive.

Those are cute!! I tried knitting socks once but it was with those double pointed needles and I was all thumbs. I think I worked on it for about 10 minutes. Kudos for sticking to it!

P.S. I really like the fabric of that skirt that is peeking out!

Elf boots...ha ha! Too cute. You are doing great and I admire your determination. My mother knits and crochets constantly and I have some of the most beautiful things from her.
