I've only been knitting for about a year and a half, so I don't have many socks to my name.  Yet.  All are knitted on size 0 DPNs, using a generic toe-up sock pattern. 

These are the first pair I actually finished.  Superwash merino.  I saw a fingerless gloves pattern on Ravelry that used a similar stripe pattern and was inspired.

And the second pair.  They're a wool/silk/alpaca blend in a gorgeous tweed and are a little tight around the ankle, and a little thick, but the yarn should stretch after a while. 

You can see there how the heel came out too small.   

Then there's the first socks I ever tried...

..and never finished.  But I got one done!  They're for my sister.  Originally meant to be a Slytherin scarf, but the yarn was purchased when I was too much of a newbie to know that sock yarn =/= good scarf yarn.  So Slytherin sock(s) they became.

Although the heel is crappy, they're the comfiest of the three.  I think the orange/red pair is my favourite, though.  My plan is to include cables in the next pair.  Wish me luck.

Awesome socks!  Good luck with your cables though I'm sure you don't need it.  Post pics when your done, would love to see them.


Personal swap friendly!  Especially ATCs!

I love the first pair! If you like stripes, a good sequence to try is the Fibonacci sequence. It's a bit nerdy but it looks good!
