I think I love knitting socks. =) This is my second pair for my daughter... I like these much better than the first pair. Though, the first pair I learned a TON while making.

The pattern is called "Toe the Line" from Learn to Knit Socks by Edie Eckman. I shortened the cuff, because my girl is so tiny.



I like this yarn much better, for one. And got way more comfortable using DPNs.

And I learned a nicer way to pick up stitches than I was taught (I think I was taught wrong!).

And I tried the kitchener stitch for the first time. Very neat finish for the toe.

It - www.knitty.com - is an online knitting magazine. A free online resource.

Knitty has wonderful patterns (not just socks) and articles on techniques, etc. There is a spinning section started up in the past few years for people who spin and/or knit.

Check out the knitty archives.
