Pattern: "Ploughed Acre Knee Socks" from Knit Green by Joanne Seiff
1. The first stockings I've ever knit.
2. The first time I've knit a pair of anything without taking a break after completing the first one and leaving it mateless for several months.
3. The first time I've knit anything without needing to have my grandmother walk me through at least one step. (Which is silly, because it's also the first time I've knitted anything while living within biking distance of Grandma's house. It would have been MUCH easier to get help with this project than the many others she labored to explain to me over the phone when I lived in Seattle ; )
