The sock book i ordered online STILL is not here and i haven’t really had the time to go on youtube and watch the video Amy recommended so in the meantime i’ve started THIS! it’s a Radiating Star blanket. It’s my mother-in-law’s Christmas present…a little late but she’s ok with that. Can you believe i started this thing on 4 double pointed needles??? You start in the center and work your way out, eventually switching to circular needles. It took me a couple of DAYS just to figure out how to get the first row done….even the lady at the yarn store couldn’t do it! But i am nothing if not persistant…and eventually i figured it out! Pretty neat huh?
