View Full Version : FO: My First Pair of Socks

06-06-2009, 05:38 PM
On my one-year anniversary of teaching myself to knit, I made my first pair of socks! Even though the yarn is ugly (and I think there is at least one gusset hole), I love these socks. I used several guides (and the videos on this site) to help me finish them. Now that I know I can actually knit socks, I'm going to move on to better, prettier yarn.

Congrats on finishing your first pair! And so soon into your knitting career too. Have you been warned how addictive they are?

I am so addicted now! Ever since I decided to learn knitting, I looked admiringly and longingly at those beautiful socks other knitters seem to create with ease. I wish I had discovered knitting earlier in my life; it truly has become a hobby I am passionate for.

Good job, and here's to many more happy sock-knitting hours! After my first pair, I made 6 more pairs. I found it addicting.

Congrats - they look great! :thumbsup: Last night I began my sixth...maybe seventh attempt at socks! This time, toe up. I'm feeling pretty good so far - hopefully I wont get a third of a way in and mess up again!

WONDERFUL! These are socks that can be worn day after day! I love the shorter cuffs!

You are all so nice. I really appreciate the positive feedback. This site has been a TREMENDOUS resource for all of my knitting questions.

I can't wait until I get started on learning how to knit socks. :woohoo:

I don't thik the colour is so bad, they go with everything. It gets more fun as you go along to other pairs, no anxiety, just fun seeing them being created before your eyes! I've made it to 4 pairs now, and it's true, it is addicting!
