Learned the Norwegian Style Cast On today.
Check out this video:
Looked at a lot of You Tubes on this, and this was what worked for me. She goes pretty slow so it was easy to follow along. I love learning something new!!

These are photos from my first attempt at these socks. I will pick them up again as my #2 of 2010.
I will for sure be sufficiently nauseated with this color by the time I am done. Did a 1″ ribbing then switched to stockinette for 3″‘. Thinking now that I wished that I had done ribbing on the leg only. Press on…… Total leg is 4″.
La Novia is now finished!
Yarn: Knit Picks dk City Tweed
I learned everything about lace knitting from this project. I thank Anne Hansen for her perfect instructions. I have to say this was the first pattern I paid for that really really deserved the purchase. She takes great care in presenting clear and easy instructions. I would recommend this pattern (or any of hers) for those thinking that they would like to step into lace knitting. I am still waiting for Anne to put out a book of her patterns. I wish she would consider it. I would order it sight unseen!
This was a really fun knit. Still searching for buttons for this.
Wow, I actually have some things almost ready for wear. I have a lot to be proud of. I have come a long way from the Saturday 2 years ago when it took me literally a whole weekend just to be able to do a cast on!
I will re-start this pair as Sock #6 soon.
