No...this is NOT the same sock...I gave up on those, frogged them and TRADED all of my sock yarn!

Then, I dont know what happened exactly, but someone on here started talking about socks again and I bought some more. :rollseyes: I intended that my first completed pair would be made from DK wt, but then I found this yummy jojoba yarn and, well, there ya go.

I think I said this already, but YAAAAAAAAAAY!
Let me know how the DK sock thing goes. I've got some sport weight, self-striping from Knit Picks, but I haven't started them yet. I still have another snapdragon sock and my KNEE socks on SIZE ONE needles to complete. How long did this take you, so I can multiply by about 17 to see how long the knee socks will take me? By the way, size two is the way to go!

One of my favorite books I bought was the Twisted Sisters Sock Book (I may have the title a little wrong but I think that is it.) She has a chart in there that takes the measurement around your foot and the weight of yarn/needle size and tells you how many stitches you should cast on. That has been so helpful to me!

WOW! WOW!! WOW!!!

I have never made adult size socks.
Lots of Christmas stockings, but they don't come in pairs. :rollseyes:
I'm pretty sure I'd end up with one my size and one DH size.

Soooooo???? Did the second one come out the same size?
