YEAH! Another addiction! I finally learned how to make socks. These were done on a size 2-12" addi circulars and dp's. I cannot believe how easy there were to do and wish I had tried a long time ago! This is my second pair. The first pair is in the wash!
The yarn used here is Catania Color by Schachenmayer and is 100% cotton. I love how they feel!

(can't figure out how to change the thread title! But I learned how to make socks., but still can't spell! hee hee

Festive socks, super job. :thumbsup: Isn't it wonderful when something we thought would be more complex turns out to be simpler to do.

Your socks are wonderful! Will you tell me about your experience using the 12" circs? I tried with 40 cast on stitches and just couldn't make it work, it was so tight! However, I also was using a size 8, 12-inch-circ, so I don't know if that makes a difference.

I do have another pair in the works! This is such an addiction! And I don't know if I can share the pattern since it is typed up on 4 pages from a yarn shop. Don't want to step on anyone's toes ya know! But here is the basic idea. I knit in 2x2 rib for 6" on my sock since I like them to stay up!

Don't you love socks now? Better cast on another pair! Love the colours.

They look great. I made one sock but it was too big around the ankle, so I put the yarn aside. How did you make sure the cuff was snug?

:yay: Great looking socks! Nice color too. Not to worry about your spelling on here. I don't think anyone really notices. I'm not to hot at it either :aww:

The 2x2 ribbing makes the cuff tight. When I finish the ones I am working on I want to try a k3 p1 rib to see how it does!

They look sensational! I am still one of the cowards that hasn't tried socks yet. I am told they are addicting.
