After making baby afghan after baby afghan and really burning out on knitting, a friend encouraged me to try smaller projects. I watched in awe as she worked on double-pointed needles (a concept I just could not wrap my little mind around). But, after she cheered me on a little and showed me a few basics, I was off and running (dpn-ing and magic-looping I should say). Anyway, I've made a few slipper socks here and there along the way . . .
