My First Socks

Okay, on Tuesday, May 24th I started making my first pair of knitted socks. All was going well until my 2 year old daughter destroyed them. How did she destroy them? She took out not just 1 but all 3 of the needles! And then my sock just went all wrong as it started unraveling as I was trying to fix it. So needless to say, I had to rip the whole thing out and start over 😦 This is not the first time she took my knitting needles out of my sock. She also took them out yesterday but I was able to fix it.

Anyways, here is a picture of what my sock looked like before she destroyed it:

Now after ripping it out, I am off to completely restart my sock over. This time I will keep it put up on top of the couch to where she cannot reach it! I thought I had it out of her reach as I had it against the back of the couch cushion but apparently she can reach that far. So maybe the third time will be the charm!

4. Go back to the Ravelry post that you want to add images to and click Edit. Once you are in the Edit screen, click on the Image Icon, which is the 6th icon from the left.

5. A dialog box will appear, which is where you paste your copied URL Address link to. Make sure to highlight the “http://” in the box and then paste over it.

6. After you have pasted the link into the box, Click OK and then there should look something like this in your post:
