I am learning to wrestle the porcupine.

See, one of my good friends from high school is graduating this year. He is absolutely fabulous, and he loves wearing outrageous mis-matched socks. So, I am going to attempt to learn how to knit socks so I can make him three or four (miss-matched) socks for graduation (at the end of May). Of course, whether or not I will be able to do this depends entirely on whether or not I'll be able to wrestle this porcupine into submission!

Today I bought some lovely german sock-weight yarn (meilemweit cotton fun, $7.75/50 oz 'cause my LYS is WAY overpriced) and some Brittany birch size 2 DPNs. For my first sock, I am attempting this. We shall see how it turns out!
