Hi Laura: Try doing what I did. Read every post about sock knitting for the next few weeks. Then go find Shandeh`s YouTube on joining and watch it several times. Then go to Silver`s Sock Tutorial and read it several times. Then start knitting!!! It`s what worked for me. My first ever sock even looked like a sock, thanks to those two wonderful people. If not for them, I would never even have had the courage to try! If I can do it, Laura, SO CAN YOU! :woot:

Socks look great. Be warned - now you'll have to knit more - then buy more needles so you can have several pair OTN - then buy more yarn to furnish your habit :)

From one how knows!

The needles are on their way. DH bought me a set of KP Harmony sock needles. I patiently (NOT) wait for their arrival.

The yarn is another story altogether. It is hard to find non-wool sock yarn in Ontario. Believe me, I have hunted. I have some coming by mail. I WILL find more!

Where do you get your yarn from.....

Who me... (picture a church basement, a sign on the wall saying simply YA (or perhaps KA), chairs lined up facing the podium, people sitting waiting, and then in comes one woman)

Hi, my name is The.Knitter and I can`t stop knitting socks. You see, it all started when I joined a community called KH. Lots of people on the KH site are VERY accomplished knitters. They inspire me to want to do better. I am constantly trying new things now. My poor husband just can`t keep up with all of this. He IS my enabler. If I need it for my knitting, he gets it for my knitting. He`s not dumb. He knows that if he gets these new things for my knitting he will get hand knit socks! The list of people asking for socks just keeps growing and growing.

I suppose I need a sponsor. The only problem is that the person I chose as my sponsor is sitting over there in that corner knitting a SOCK!!!!!

:roflhard:

What great socks and I love the colour. I am finally knitting a pair of socks for myself at the moment using Lorna's Laces. Whenever I finish a pair of socks they seem to go walkabouts (thanks to my DD!!)
