    Perfect demo, as usual! I like that you used the pink marker on the stitches, because it really shows up well. I will be making many more of these : )

    Thank for the knit along. I hadn’t made toe up socks before–my first pair, even if I misread the pattern and did a 4 row cable instead of a 10 row. I enjoyed the fingerless glove to as I had not done gloves like that since I was 8 or 10 and my grandmother was teaching me how to do all the individual fingers. Excellent videos also.

    What a wonderful time I had with the “Center of Attention” Socks, marvelous directions, wonderful videos and just loved the design… Thank You so Much, now this fingerless glove really blew me away as to how easy and quick it was to knit (not counting waiting time ;-)) and the design is so feminine…. can’t wait for the next project, already have my Trekking “Prism” and needles waiting with baited breath ;-). I am having so much fun with this ;-).
