I have this gorgeous sock yarn forever and I finally got time today to sit down and cast on. :woohoo: I have done one other pair of socks, but they were just a ribbed boot sock on size 5's for the hubby. These will be the Broadripple pattern off KPC on size 3's.
I've asked to be enrolled in a sock knitting class at the LYS for my birthday so I can learn 2 circulars and magic loop b/c I love knitting socks, but am not too coordinated with DPN's.

Cool I hope you have fun. I also teach magic loop socks and other knitting stuff.

Congrats on finally taking the plunge! Good luck!

Yeah, watch out! I started at the end of last year, and finished one pair. Determinedly decided not to fall prey to "Second Sock Syndrome," I immediately cast on for the second sock.

within a few weeks I was working on my second pair... and I began to see the problem with that second sock. But I pushed through.

Yesterday, I had my first class on knitting two socks on two circulars! I'm really excited about this, and have about 2 1/2 inches done on BOTH socks! Whoo-hoo!

Yeah, it's a little addicting. :)

congrats on making your socks. They are such great take along projects.:) Have fun on the different ways to make them. They are all great ways but I do love my dpns a lot. I am in the class with mitchie and love it. It is the magic loop and I love that one. I find it goes a little faster on making them.:thumbsup: So happy birthday and hope you get the class on making socks. It is addictive I keep making them for everyone but me. :tap: I have one lone pair of socks that I made for me and I hide them from my granddaughter, she steals them as fast as I make them.:roflhard::roflhard:
