That's all it is really. There are no other stitches. But there are variations on the knitting and purling. You'll love it once you start doing other stuff with it.

It's just using different patterns and directions but all you can do is knit and purl. Once you get the hang of it and try other stuff you'll see how different you have make things look with just those two.

Hey! I just realized that Wenda and I are LJ friends, because I've totally seen that scarf before

Opal sock yarn

There are a lot of great sock knitting books out there, but even better are the plethora of online tutorials. Just do a google search and you will be overwhelmed with sites, blogs and pdfs.

Thanks for the links. Those look great! And inspiring!

Wenda -- those are gorgeous! Have you been to a Stitches convention yet? I went to one in Baltimore and there were rows and rows of booths with LOTS of yarn and even more yarn addicts. I was told that there is something called the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival which is for really intense yarn addicts. Should I look for you there?

Thanks very much! I have never been and honestly I've never even heard of it. But now I wanna go!!

Don't know how far I'd travel for yarn though. Sounds dreamy though...sigh.

If I can unearth my brochure from the convention, I'll post the website for you, but as I recall there are different Stitches conventions in different areas of the country, and even a Summer Camp. So you may not have to travel quite as far as you think!
