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.

Those look great!

I too am addicted to socks.  It's the perfect portable project.  And a fairly cheap knit as well.

I did the same thing. At first I was like...socks? Now I wonder why I didn't make the connection sooner! Socks are some of my favorite articles of clothing!! This is combining socks AND knitting!

Plus...you finish them faster than say...a sweater.

Great socks. I think it's awesome that I can tell what yarn you used before reading what you wrote :-D
