Or for me, for that matter :-).
Thank you for all of your comments and encouragement as I knit through my very first sock. Sorry if all of those in progress pictures have some people the impression that I made it through the second of the pair. I cast on for number two last night. All of the "can-I-do-it?" trepidation that came with creating the first sock has melted away, and I'm settling in to this knit with a heightened degree of "knitting confidence".
I'm not an insecure person, in general, but the thought of that heel was quite intimidating until I worked through the instructions. When in doubt, follow the directions. Isn't that usually the way with knitting?
