Hi,

I am a beginner knitter who'd like to knit her first sock.  I've been looking up the threads and sites and Silver's sock class tutorial seemed the clearest.

Toe-up socks on two circular needles.

Would anyone be interested in a knitalong?  I'm thinking of starting with a simple lace pattern and would love to have some company.

Thanks

PS: If you're an experienced knitter and just want to knit a pair of socks and keep an angst-ridden newbie company, that's fine too!!

I just wanted to pop in and say I taught myself from Silver's dpns sock tutorial, her instructions are really clear and make it easy, so I would highly recommend her tutorials to anyone who's been afraid to try socks so far...y'all should definitely give it a go!

Silver's Sock class is an amazing site. I've knit her cuff down on DPN's multiple time. It's easy to memorize and the site is well written. I won't be joining as my UFO's slowly building but I thought I should share my tale of success with silver's sock class Cheesy Good Luck but you won't need it Cheesy

I'd love to join, I'm scared of socks too.  I'd use dpn's but I need to get some sock yarn.

I just picked up a pair of dpns from an op shop for a dollar.  Now all I need is some yarn and I'm ready to go too. 

Hi Alison! - hopefully you have sock yarn soon!!

I am not joining in as I have made 6 pairs of socks using Silver's Dpn pattern.
I just wanted to say that if it wasn't for me finding her site I would of never made socks. Every other pattern that I say was written in some kind of sock language that I didn't understand. But Silver's was first grade reading!

I now feel as tho I am ready to move onto other sock patterns!

I hope you all stick with Silver's site and make it thru your first pair of socks!

Good luck!
