I'm a pretty new knitter (just barely comfortable with the basics), so using DPNs feels a bit out of reach for me right now.  For some reason, loom knitting seems far more accessible.  I used Isela Phelp's pattern for "Chunky Ribbed Socks" in her book Loom Knitting Primer.  Super easy to follow and a nice introduction to sock making.  It made me buy sock weight yarn, and I'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of a fine gauge adjustable loom to make socks that are thin enough to wear with shoes. 

These are made with Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn in sky blue.   They were knitted on the blue knifty knitter, and they're definitely thick and warm enough to be slippers.  I guess they'd be awesome in boots in cold weather, but since I'm in Texas, I have no idea what real cold weather is. Smiley

Sorry for the crummy phone pics!


Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
