Charles, what a beautiful job on the socks:-) It is my goal, to learn how to knit socks with double pointed needles. I will be asking my mother to show me how, because she has been knitting since she was a little girl of 6 years old.

I am working full time now, so I have not had a chance to update my own blog.

Once again, beautiful job on the socks:-)
