Well, I didn't think when I started knitting that socks would interest me. After all, you work hard on an item and it ends up on someone's smelly feet! And they wear out!

But you know what? They're fun to do! So anyone who hasn't tried knitting socks, stop whatever it is you're working on and knit a pair :)

I used some self striping yarn I found while on vacation in Vancouver BC, at Burnaby Knits. (The brand was Clown).

No pattern, just browsing through dozens of sock patterns on the net and put together my own hybrid sock instructions, whatever it was that I could understand easily.

After going through the exercise, its much easier than it looked before I tried :)

On to the next pair...

OMG! How CUTE!! I've been looking for the PERFECT sock yarn! Is that sport weight? I really want to do Silver's tutorial and she starts you out with sport weight. I can't believe these are your FIRST!!

Those are great! I just started knitting socks and I love them! I managed to finish one toddler sized sock today, start to finish, and it feels so awesome to finish something so quickly (can you tell I'm a n00b?).

Secondly, I can't believe that this is your FIRST pair! I wish my first pair had looked as good!

Wow!

Actually fingering weight. I have not seen the "Clown" brand of self striping sock yarn since finding this particular one in Vancouver.

It's actually hard finding a self striping pattern I like. I think the next socks I do, I'll be in complete control of colors and pattern :)
