You know when I first started knitting this year, I wondered why on earth people wanted to knit socks. I am now working on my third pair and still have no idea. Its just so fun for some reason, or maybe satisfying is a better word?
Anyways these are my first socks:
Made with Knitpicks simple stripes. I find the colourway a little garish, and the yarn a little scratchy, but I still love them. They are a little loose, and the first one has a too tight cast on and second has a too loose cast on, but oh well.
Oh yes and I learned to knit socks from this website. It is great, so helpful when you don't know anyone else who knits. http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm
My second pair:
I made these for my hubby. Lorna's Lace Shepard Sock Camo. I used the Sensational Knitted Socks book , Gater Rib pattern. They also came out a little loose, I don't think the book explained negative ease, or if it did I skipped that part.
My sock in progress:
Making these for my Mom for Christmas, I went back to the tutorial for my first sock for these, and am doing a simple stockinette stitch because I love the way the yarn looks. It is Trekking XXL.
Anyways those are my socks, I am happy to report that that last one is off the needles, and fits like a glove. I think I am catching on here.
