1  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Re: double pointed needles??? on: August 12, 2008 07:51:34 PM
Knittinghelp.com is good and also Youtube is fabulous. I learned how to knit by watching youTube videos. Just start typing in the things you are wondering about and see what pops up. Good Luck! DPNs aren't hard, it's just like knitting with straight needles, once you finish knitting on one stick you move on to the next, etc.

So nobody has made socks on 2 circulars? Or knows where I could find general sizing/cast on info for various sizes?   Embarrassed
5  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / Socks on 2 circs question.... on: April 07, 2008 10:59:15 AM
Okay, so I ordered a kit from Knitpicks that had Cat Bordhi's Book in it with 2 circs, and a hank of sock yarn. Now the first question is, in the book she refers to the sizes of the first sock as a "medium child, medium women, medium mens" sock. However, nowhere in the book is any reference made as to what defines a childs medium or a womens medium. I am thinking my size 10 feet are probably not in the "medium" definition. So how much do I cast on to make size socks for my size 10 feet? What about DHs size 13 feet?
I am in a quandry! Can anybody help?
I would like to make DD socks as her little foot would be much better to learn this new method with. She is 2.5yo, and wears a size 8 in toddler shoes. What do I cast on for that with typical fingering wt sock yarn?

HELP!

So a month ago I coudn't knit. A couple books and a zillion You Tube videos later we have this! I am hooked! I have already finished 1 sock for DH (have to get more yarn) and have started another pair for my self.

I taught myself how to knit 3 weeks ago by reading a book and watching countless YouTube videos. I made 3 dishcloths, 2 bibs, and a pair of practice socks. I made those with 3.75mm needles and acrylic yarn. Now I am halfway through my first real sock with sock yarn and sz 1.5 DPNs.
You can do it! If you can knit and purl then get a good reference book that will help you with the lingo.
Good luck!

Thanks guys! No I was always too intimidated by the two hand action of knitting. I inherited a bunch of knitting needles from my granny who passed away last year. And I decided I would try and figure it out, how hard could it be? It sure is a different "feel" than crochet.
I started with some size 5mm aluminum DPNs but they kept slipping out of the yarn. So then I bought some 3.75mm bamboo and I really liked those, not so slippery.
As far as You Tube, I would just type in knitting and start watching. Since we all have different teaching/learning styles, some videos didn't make sense to me, while others were an "A-Ha" experience.

You did a really great job! Were they a toe up pattern, or top down? Love the colors. My next socks will be out of this great speckled lime wool. Can't wait to start!
