Spring-y socks
Hello there!

Just thought I'd share a picture of the pair of socks that I just finished today! These will be a birthday gift for a friend of mine, and I decided to call them my "Hint of Spring" socks.

This is my 3rd pair of socks now...thanks to the simply wonderful videos GrumpyGramma suggested. A BIG thank you to her!!!

So...if you are scared to try knitting socks, lay aside your fears. These tutorials are excellent, and they lead you step-by-step through the whole pattern.

I your Hint of Spring Socks! You're welcome for what little I did. Shandeh, one of our mods, made the videos, I'm sure she'd love to hear that you found them so helpful, all I did was provide the link. Honestly, I've not even watched all of them. I'd found a toe-up tutorial/pattern/recipe that I was already using when I came across them but I know she's a fantastic teacher. Doesn't it feel great to succeed so beautifully? Shandeh will be so pleased!

Oh, what a lucky friend! Those are fabulous. I like that they're short, too--perfect for spring and summer wear.

Yes! Another sockaholic! Check out dancejunky's socks, this pair really blew my mind - http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/sh...ght=dancejunky. And the Skew Socks auburnchick did may be the first sock pattern I actually use.

Beautiful and a very welcome hint of spring. I'm sure your friend will love the socks and the idea that possibly spring might be on the way. No wonder you have family lining up for pairs. Lovely work!

Those look super! I will try some socks soon, I think. Glad to hear it's not too daunting!
