Happy New Year, Craftsters!

I never thought my tube-sock sporting gentleman companion would agree to anklets, but when they're tiger-colored, anything's possible!

Ooooh, purty... I'm guessing you got the wool that colour to start with, it's great! And good job with convincing your gentleman companion into those socks, I'm sure his feet are the grrrrrrreatest for miles. Aha.... not funny x_X

Very cool. My hubby sports white anklets in the summer. You made these look very manly.

now are there any patterns for socks for beginner's? I love looking at the patterns u all have but they seem so hard for me to do. Any one know of any sites that has socks for beginners and doesn't use the double ended needles?

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

thanks everyone!  i just love the grrrrreat jokes, myself Wink.

now are there any patterns for socks for beginner's? I love looking at the patterns u all have but they seem so hard for me to do. Any one know of any sites that has socks for beginners and doesn't use the double ended needles?

socks can be intimidating... i don't know of any 2-needle sock patterns that don't involve magic loop or some other fancy technique.  but i will say... don't let DPNs intimidate you!  my first circular project was a simple sock pattern i got some yarn i bought. it's similar to this pattern:

i also relied heavily on this tutorial, called "Socks 101."  tons of pictures, very clear explanations.  you should check it out!

Guessica,
Your footlets are very manly - but i couldn't quite convince MY men to go along. 

Your site is lovely!  And you have totally convinced me attempt something Entrelac inspired!  It looks so easy when shown on the needles! 
I'm thinking of giving this a go:
