The server just ate my post :verysad:
Here's another try.

I just made my first sock, hooray! It's kinda lumpy and way too big and the yarn is much too thick (worsted weight)--but I wanted some easy stuff to work with for my first try.

I've been scared of socks for over a year, I tried to start Silver's (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm) sock class but I felt too dangerous with those dpns poking every which way. So I gave up on socks...

Until this morning! I found another tutorial (http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/socks.html) showing how to knitting on two circs. I combined both tutorials and wound up with a sock! I started and finished this sock in less than a day. Very fun...so not terrifying! :happydance:

I must make his twin, and then next go 'round I'll try some actual sock weight yarn and smaller needles. See if I can't end up with something I could actually wear with shoes.

Ch-ch-check it out!
