I am reeeeeeally getting into knitting socks, since discovering the magic loop method. LOVE it!!!
I haven't made very many yet, but the ones I have are all very basic and plain. I like them, but they are very plain.
I am working on the second sock of two different pairs. The first sock I ever made was the 56 Stitch 56 Row Sock
. I really like it, and just FINALLY re-started the second sock yesterday. I just couldn't tolerate the dpns anymore so I frogged it and started with magic loop. Going much faster.
I also made one of a pair of this pattern
in 100% wool, dark grey with an orange heel and toe. It knitted up really fast on size 6 needles and I'm about half way through the leg portion of the second sock.
The next one I have on my plans is the Twisted Sock
from knitpicks, which will be a bit more challenging for me because I'm not great at lots of ribbing, but a challenge is always a good thing, right???
SOOOO, now that I'm all into socks, I'd like to hear what have been your favorite patterns.
