I looked a the link and giggled. You are right, the actual knitting doesn't look very hard at all, but I'm not quite there yet. But I've added it to my favourites and I really do like the pattern so maybe after a couple more projects I'll get there. Thanks!!
The 3x1 ribbed socks are coming along....I'll post a picture when I get the first one done.
My problem is that I've been too timid to try to translate patterns. I'll see an awesome pattern that was written for circular needles and immediately pass on it. Last night, I was surfing a bit and realized...Hey!....I can very easily translate that to DPN's. I'd consider myself to be an "experienced beginner" knitter and I'm really having fun learning more about knitting. The replies to this post have really helped me a bunch.
I think that Craftster is an awesome forum, but it's the people on here who make it that way.
Thanks all for helping me learn new things!
