There is nothing wrong with my knitting skills after all. I wasn't doubting that too much, but still after two failed attempts I was certainly losing my patience. Pictures to come after dinner! I am making some great progress that I can't wait to share with everyone. :)
After dinner update: I finished one bootie! So I am about 45% done with the entire project. I took a few pictures along the way but I haven't gotten them up on the computer yet. When I do load them I will share them. I am so excited that I actually made progress. I love knitting booties because there are so many different ways to make them and each time I make a pair I learn a new technique.
