I have to admit, there were times I didn't think I'd ever want to do another one, not even the mate for this one, but now I think I'm in the groove... The second one is underway. I gotta say, I love magic loop!

Keep up the good work! It will not be long until you can knit socks in your sleep.

It's Patons sock yarn - I got it at Michaels.

Artlady - Ha! We're all in awe of you, you've got nothing to prove by knitting a sock!! :mrgreen:

KnittingNat - I never really had an urge to knit socks before, and just did it to prove something. But yes, I'm seeing where the addicting part comes in - I can just throw this thing in a bag and take it anywhere! Can't do that as easily with a big ole afghan.

Oh, yeah! I think that has been my big hangup with socks, those durn DPN's. I hate 'em. But I watched the magic loop video on this site, looked at Silver's sock tutorial, and I was off and running! Then a friend loaned me a DVD called "Knitting Socks on a Single Circular Needle with Leslye Solomon" which helped me through the gusset and toe decreases. The whole sock, one size 2 circ! I'm loving it!

And thanks... :teehee:

Nice work! The first socks is hard to make, the other ones is much easier.
