WIP: First time Socks
This is the first time I am making socks. Also, the first time I am using dpns. It was a little awkward at first but I think I am getting the hang of it. I am making the Easy Peasy socks pattern
I watched all the videos
I am using Chroma Worsted from knitpicks I can't think of the name of the color I am using lol

Here is my progress so far

Yes I messed up and did 2x2 ribbing instead of k1p1 so I just kept it that way lol
I was watching Amy's video and she did 2x2 ribbing so I just had that on the brain.

These are going to be beautiful I'm sure. You've made an excellant start and the work on dpns looks great. It's a lovely soft color combination too. What fun to knit with.

Thanks I was so excited that I figured out how to use the dpns correctly that I came on here to show everyone. It took me longer to take the pictures and then post the links and the pictures than it did to actually make that.
I showed my husband but he just looked at me like I had three heads.

Doing a great job. I think 2 x 2 is better anyway. Am anxious to see the finished project. Let us know if you hit any bumps! Good luck, it took me 8 years to get up the courage to do a pair of socks. I found a pattern that was so easy it got me going and from there on it, I was hooked on socks.

You're doing great with DPNs. Love the colors of your yarn. They're for you? When they're done just put them on when hubby's around, sigh, and say how good they feel. I know what you mean about getting so exciited, I'm glad you posted with a photo. I use 2x2 rib on socks, it's great you could just go with it and not feel the need to rip it out.

I have huge feet and they say to start with a smaller foot for first socks so I am making them for my MIL. She loves those colors.

I am not that OCD anymore to rip it out and start all over to make it perfect. I am medicated now

Did you already tell MIL they're for her? If not, you can just make them longer till they fit you. Assuming of course that they fit around your foot. My first socks were for my 9 1/2 shoe size feet but I did them in worsted weight and wear them like slippers. They will go in my winter boots but I only wear them in the winter when it's really cold out and maybe snowy and last winter I didn't wear them at all.

Love the colors!!! I haven't gotten up the courage to try socks yet. So many projects to do and soooo little time!!! Maybe when I retire I'll catch up on all the things I've been planning on making.

No I didn't tell her yet. My feet are huge lol I am a size 12. So I would have to follow a pattern for men's socks.

If the circumference is OK all you need to do is make them longer by working more rounds.
