Updated...Two Socks Down, NONE to go!
I finished my FIRST SOCK last night!





I SWEAR it took me longer to knit this ONE sock than it does to knit a whole PAIR of cloggies! :rollseyes: I dont think Ill make any more socks on SIZE 1 needles....

I used Austermann Step sock yarn (color #1 on link). It has aloe & jojoba in it so as not to allow the wool to dry out your fingers whilst knitting. SOOOOOO soft! Now, if they only made a DK wt version!

I used THIS PATTERN. I think Ill look for a differnt one next time....I dont think I like the pointy toe on this one.

Thanks, everybody!!

I liked the IDEA of this yarn.....its REALLY soft, as I mentioned above, with the aloe & jojoba infusion....but, I dont think Ill make any more socks with sz 1 needles.

Kelly...You are just so talented...great job...did you just follow the pattern or did you also use Silver's sock class tutorial? The socks are...in your words...GAWGEOUS...I imagine working with size 1 needles can be quite tedious

That looks great, Kelly!

I am trying to find an easy sock pattern for a beginner with size 3 meedles, because I don't think I can handle needles smaller than a 3 yet. Those size 1 needles would make me totally loco!

It looks wonderful! I think the toe looks great too. Actually I kind of like a pointier toe. I like the fact they don't look JUST like store bought.

Why is that about it taking so long? Me too. I think part of it is cause I get sick of going in short circles and keep putting it down!

It looks great, Kelly!! I did my first pair on size 3's- I'd still be working on them if I'd attempted 1's!!
