I just have to share....
So, this is like my 6th attempt at making socks - this poor yarn.... I can't believe it is actually still in one piece from all the frogging I have done! I first tried on dpns - did not like!! Then using 2 circs from the top down - did not like!! (Well, maybe it was the pattern, or not being used to using sock yarn) This time I gave it a shot using 2 circs, but making them toe up. Found a great tutorial and a nice simple lace pattern, and voila! I am at the point of creating the gusset and have yet to frog the suckers! So, I just thought I would share my progress Maybe by posting here, I will not only finish this sock, but also not suffer from SSS!



Anyhow,

It's looking really nice! I use two circs most of the time. Like anything else it just takes practice.

They're looking beautiful. I agree totally with Jan! I really enjoying knitting socks 2 on 2 circs. I had to start over quite a few times when I was learning. It looks like you've got the technique down now!!

You're doing great! It's a beautiful sock and yarn. Keep at it! Once you feel them on your feet you won't have SSS!

It took me awhile to get the hang of socks. My first pair consisted of one sock that was all blue and one that was blue, black, and pink. All because I ran out of yarn! (You can check them out here http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...ad.php?t=75097, as that was a while ago)By the way, that color is really pretty, and those socks are looking fabulous!

Actually, I kinda wish I had tried doing both at once, but I figured I would keep it a simple as possible lol!

I SO much prefer the 2 circs to DPNs - I kept having those suckers slip out of my work, and found it much harder to tink back when I needed to.
