This is my second project, or third if you include a dishcloth in my repertoire. I am proud to say that I am living proof that yes, beginners CAN knit socks, and no, it's not that scary.

This is knit with much less than a skien of Sockotta Bold Stripes 5616; a basic sock pattern in size adult small (I wear sz 9 1/2 shoes), with Brittany bamboo DPN size 2 (set of five). The second sock is a tad looser, even though the stripes match up beautifully. Come to think of it, my right foot -is- larger than my left... Mm, warm feet.

Please excuse the picture happiness. The latter photos show the true color.

Life, liberty and the pursuit of craftiness.

awsome job!

my knitting expertise consists of two scarves...both of which ended up with holes, dropped stitches and weren't at all straight...

but you give me hope.

I love the colors!

I do lots of sewing and bookmaking and random other crafts, but I'm so afraid to start knitting because I don't think I'll be able to make anything besides scarves (although I've seen some beautiful scarves here!)...  Yay for the inspiration - nice work!

I have been dreaming about knitting socks since I first learned to knit a year ago, and it has yet to happen. This is encouraging! Now I just need to find the right pattern.  Smiley

Awesome! I'm glad there's a beginner knitting socks. I'm a beginner, too, and I was really thinking I'd try to knit a pair. But with you saying you knit size Adult Small and they fit feet size 9.5, i'm worried about mine not fitting if I made them - I wear a size 5 or 6! Any thoughts?
