One can never have too many buttons!


So. I am officially taking a sock class/course starting this coming Tuesday evening with Katherine Foster of KateKnits(.com) This obviously meant that I needed to buy myself some yarn. Now, what says summer, beginner and broke student more than 3 balls of $5.00 lime-green 'Buttons' (of Naturally Hand Knit Yarns) yarn? Not much my friends, not much. On Saturday I will have the pleasure of meeting the teacher and getting some questions about yarn and needle size needed, I am getting excited!

It is a poor day for photo-taking, alors, pretend that the green is... fresher.

Hmmm--- Socks are fun to knit, and not hard at all. You'll have a good time!

Is that yarn wool (from sheep)? Wool is easier to work with. Check your thrift shops -- sometimes you can find real bargains.

I've been warned by all my friends mothers to stay away from socks, lest I get swamped with requests, but I'm excited nonetheless.

And it is an 83% wool(New Zealand), and 17% "effect" polyester.

$15 dollars for a broke student used to mean 30 less boxes of Kraft Macarroni and cheese!

Trust me, do the socks. If you knit clogs you will have orders coming out of your asshole.

Good luck in class,

Chris(tex knitter)

Actually, as of yesterday, I'm out of classes for the summer!
I start up at the local University in September, however.
