YAY!! I LOVE when people use my sock tutorial! :) I wrote it a while ago, acutally on a soapmaking forum. Those crafty people were really interested in knitting, so they talked me into doing a sock tutorial. I wrote it ON the forum, and they knit along. There were a lot of participants, and most of them had only knit scarves before. By the time we were finished, they all had knitted socks.

It was such a hit, I converted it into a webpage. And I still get an email or two a week from someone who has knitted their first sock. It really makes me happy. :)

Anyway, if you get stuck, feel free to hunt me down. I'll help you out asap. And of course, you can always post a message in the how-to forum and someone will come along to help!

I got it on my favorites and looking at what to buy on KP, then ordering it and waiting ( stalking) my mail lady. Thats my biggest problem right now, what color to buy! I love em all! :drooling:

I was trying to measure my foot last night to decide which yarn thickness and such to get. My hubby was dying :roflhard: at me. :oops: And my kids think I've completely lost it. :oo: :rollseyes:

Silver, I was watching along on the soap list as you led a group through their first socks, it was really fun keeping up with their comments, questions, and posted pictures while they learned. Although it was *you* who got me started on my first scarf a year or so ago on that same soap forum, I was unable to knit along with the sock group at the time. I kept the link to your tutorial, though, and when I finally got around to tackling socks in September it was a huge help to review your clear photos and logical instructions. I have now got several pairs of finished socks under my belt and a good sized stash of sock yarn piled up for winter knitting! Thanks for the inspiration, I highly recommend your site for new sock knitters. :thumbsup:
