Scrunchy, slouchy slipper socks: Lion Brand Yarn Co.



Knitting is something that I have not done since I was about 9 or 10 years old, at school, with my mother's help, as she was very good at it and obviously I was not. I have been thinking about doing a bit of that and also crochet for the longest time, but never stopped and took the time to do any.
.
These are the supplies for this lovely free pattern on the Lion Brand yarn website called "Scrunchy, slouchy slipper socks", something useful and fun as I love those things. I thought that it would be a nice way to slowly restart knitting.
.
I was chatting with my best friend Terry about it, who has done just about everything a person can imagine (legal that is) and she offered her assistance in guiding me with this project, long distance all the way from England. I jumped on her offer with both feet :-) Just learning the language used in knitting is a lot of work just by itself (grinning) and it has been so long since I have knitted anything, so that should be an interesting experience.
.
So, between stitching, finishing and knitting and who knows what else, I should be able to stay relatively out of trouble, at least that is my biggest ambition. They say variety is the spice of life so things are quite "spicy" at my place :-)

yes it will be fun to make them together, however not sure yet what yarn or size I will make mine, I hope it is not too long before we can make a start on them

If I can knit, dear heart, so can you!! You do virtually everything else--legal, of course!
