Jane tagged me for a meme. I think this is interesting.

1. Go into your archive.
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag five some other people to do the same.

Here's mine:

Speaking of socks...last night I turned the heel on both socks, one at a time, but both of them still on the same needle.

That was the first pair of socks I did 2 at a time doing Magic Loop, but they were cuff down and I had quite a time with them. Obviously before I found Queen Kahuna and her better "magical" ways of knitting socks....
The next bit of that post says:

Then, believe me when I tell you I have NO IDEA what I did next to get the gussets going and the socks back on the needle the way they were supposed to be. My plan was to take notes on how I did it, but I got so screwed up (and frustrated!) that I just did whatever it took to get myself untangled. I ended up having to enlist the help of 3 double point needles to rearrange the stitches back in the right order, but finally I did it, and around and around I started going again.

That post was from the week before Halloween last year. When I was going through my archives I realized that it was one year ago this week that I taught my first knitting class. Wow...what a whirlwind year it's been!

Trishie the sock maniac. You know, you should be part of Jacqs's Sock Zombie brigade. (see here: http://sockzombie.blogspot.com/)

I'll reply to my tag soon!

Aha -- you had trouble when you first tried to learn the Magic Loop too! (Smiles, as self-esteem begins to go back up.) I'm NOT a loser, I'm NOT a loser....LOL.

The first TWO times I tried to magic loop a sock, I got myself completely inverted somehow and had to knit the rest of the sock purling! Fun for all I tell....especially those in the group listening to me cursing under my breath for hours!
