Thanks for the invitation!

Hi Bells & Rose Red, thanks for inviting me; thanks to my sister Amy for suggesting I sign up. I fervently hope I finish the pair of socks I already have on the needles. Ever. This particular sock yarn was bought at least 7 years ago because I wanted Something from a cool yarn store but couldn't commit to a sweater's worth. (It's Patons Kroy, but the old Kroy, not the new one, it's that old.) I've cast on at least a dozen different things with it and it always went back to string. I'm to the heel on the first sock of the embossed leaves pattern in Interweave Knits' 25 favorite socks book and I think this is it. I hope. But I have next to no knitting time and I bet it takes me all your summer to finish one pair. But it'll be fun to play anyway. Next time I'll try posting a photo.
