WIP - my first attempts at socks!
My right foot!!
My friend in Germany knits loads of socks and sent me some wool and with the aid of my 86 year old mother and a blogger's pattern (http://winwickmum.blogspot.co.uk/201...-tutorial.html) and 4 DPNs I started.

OK it's not the best sock in the world but i'm quite proud of it

Now, if i can JUST manage the other i'll have a pair!

It looks fantastic to me. Did you use the dpns all the way or switch to the tiny circular? Love the yarn colors. You have got to knit that second sock.

I used DPNs - I did invest in a short length circular but my mum threw her hands up in horror and I must admit when I tried it I didn't like it and switched back to the DPNs. I used 4 (ie stitches on 3 and the 4th to knit) which surprised Anja who does hers on 4 and uses the 5th to knit - again that was because mum said there weren't enough stitches for 4 and she was right. The pattern is just a beginners sock pattern - I must admit I love the way the colours of the wool have knit up, i'm on the heel flap of the second and I have already bought more sock wool to do some more!

That's a lovely sock. The pair will be 2x as lovely. Enjoy wearing them.
