I finally felt compelled to knit some sox! they still need some work, as you can see the hole at the toe! hehe... but these are my frist real pair, and really quick to make! I had an entire ball of Jiffy yarn left over, size 10 dpns, and used the Elizabeth Bennet sock pattern generator, which was really useful!

Tres cute!  And stripey!  I've been struggling over my own first pair of sox for a while now.  Frogged the first go round even.  I always get stuck at the heel.   Sad

Oh, those are really nice!! They look so soft too--great job Smiley I haven't tried socks yet. I've heard so many terrible things about Turning The Heel...is that as scary as they say??

Thanx!

These were actually not that bad. I've knitted two different sox before these, but never a complete pair! hehe... actually turning the heel is my favorite part! It's made up of "short rows" where you knit, and turn your work... then it looks like it's never going to work and whoever wrote the pattern must've been smoking something, but you actually slip the stitch off the needle and you say to yourself "oh duh!"  Cheesy

Gussets are a bit tricky. But by the second sock I was all right. Definitely give it a shot, especially with large needles so it's not that scary!

Sexy sox! They look all thick and warm.  Smiley

I went to my LYS the other day(guitar's in the shop for two weeks, I was depressed and wanted yarn), and they had this sexy Norwegian sock yarn(85%wool, 15% cotton, or something) regular 13.99CND, on sale for 6.99CND. I yayed, because like you, I finally felt compelled to make some socks for myself. Got myself a handy little reference book of sock patterns as well, in case I fall in love with sock knitting.

I've got a few things on my queue before the socks, but I'll be sure to post pics when I'm through with them.  Cheesy
