One of the things on my "Bucket List"............

Loved the idea of the "bucket list" from the movie (didn't see the movie) ~~ a list of things you would like to accomplish, etc. before you "kick the bucket".  My list is so very long I hope to be around at least another 100 years to make 
a dent it it.

Anyway, one of the things I have always wanted to do was to learn to knit socks -- great project for a beginner, right?  Well, thanks to the enthusiasm and encouragement of a group of special friends, 
I gave it a try.  

Here are my first 2 socks -- now to get their mates done.  I hope to have the blue mate done tomorrow some time, and then on to the multi colored/stripped sock's mate.  This is really fun and 4 double pointed needles is doable and I am having such fun learning. LOL.

The bucket list is a great movie. Makes one think. I advise you to see it.

Jackie, that is one of my favorite movies. You should see it.
As for your socks I think they make a lovely pair. Wear them like that..
But it you must make another pair to match this pair because you might lose one in the dryer or something..

I love your socks Jackie! And agree with Sunni that you could wear them like this :).

Love the stripey ones.

Love to you and Joe.

Jackie, I love your socks. You are so lucky to have friends to help you learn how to knit. I always wanted to. I taught my self the basics, but crochet comes easier for me. But I would love to knit well. I love the lacey look you can achieve in knitting.

So what else is on your list. That would be a better tagged list don't you think? If I ever get tagged again, I'll start a new strain.
