Another newbie

Hi folks! I'm Jennifer, and this is my first post here. I don't have a list yet, but I have a few projects finished already that I ought to assign recipients to. For example: these socks. (My DH is the grudging model.)

And there may be more of these...I love making socks but my budget doesn't really allow for lots of sock yarn purchases, so I made these with Wool-Ease and size 5 dpns (most of my family lives in New York, so worsted-weight socks aren't a problem). I also just finished a great, super-fast ruffly scarf yesterday (no pic yet) that I'll be making more of as well. Men are harder...though I suppose I can make bigger socks for them. :) And I have a great idea for a knitted ornament that I'll be playing around with this week.

I look forward to seeing all of your projects! Hopefully I'll have a list by the next time I post.

hi Jennifer,

I like your finished socks very much - nice pattern and they look soft and cozy. A great start to your holiday kntiting!

Thanks! It's actually my first sock design (though a super-easy one). They're going to my best friend H.
