Title: My first (slightly mismatched) pair of socks!
Post by: hawkeyes_girl on May 15, 2011 10:39:40 AM
My very first pair of socks....I suffer from single sock syndrome.
For my mom, who is a 1/2 size smaller than I.....

A basic toe-up pattern, with short row heels. They are slightly off because I used 2 different skeins. Deborah Norville sock yarn.

The first sock went like lightening but whoo boy...the second was nothing but problems. I darned the edges of the heels for strength....my short rows always leave holes....but I think they turned out pretty well considering!

Hmm, I seem to suffer from that syndrome myself. Great work with the pair. They look really good.

Nice work! I aspire to socks. Did you use magic loop or dpn's?

Thanks!  ;D

I'm a dpn girl so far....I like using bamboo instead of metal..they flex more than metal making it easier on my arms.
I'm sure circs are easier but I'm intimidated for socks. Once I find a technique I tend to stick to it.

I made my first pair with the same sock  yarn!  I had problems with the second sock because I want it to match my first (which is kinda hard to do on self striping sock yarn).  Now that it's all done, I don't plan to make another pair of socks until I get that urge again.

I too made my first pair of socks out of this yarn, and they don't exactly match, both the stripping pattern and the size, you're not alone. I love mine though wear them all the time!
