Well, it's time. I promised a pair of socks to our friend that we stayed with while we were in Santa Fe. The yarn arrived two days ago, so naturally I cast on for a scarf I wanted to make.
The pattern is Sideways Socks
Yarn recommended for pattern is Lana Grossa Fantasy Stretch
; the yarn I'm using is Patons Stretch Socks
They are both fingering weight yarns with the same W.P.I., the yardage for the Patons is a little different than the yardage for the Lana Grossa, but not by much. Additionally, I ordered a 40" circular needle, size 1 1/2 that came with the yarn,
that this will end up being the correct size.
So, please, please, please, all you sock makers out there. Any words of advice, any tips you could give are greatly appreciated. I can answer any questions that you have about the pattern if you need any clarification there.
Thank you all so much.
