That's awesome! I'm working on my first pair of socks right now...they are for my mom for mother's day. I'm using a self-striping yarn and it looks really cool...I just bought some dark gray too to make some for my best friend.

this isnt' the first time i *started* a pair, but this is the first time i made it past the ribbing. I'm really challenged by ribbing for some reason. the other times i've tried it's been in 2x2 and this is 1x1 and it's the first time my ribbing has really looked like ribbing, so i'm pretty excited. i am out of town right now so i decided to pick up some Encore worsted and size 5 DPNs to try it, but i have some marvelous self-striping sock yarn at home waiting for me! I'm really really excited!!!! Enjoy your sock making!

I tried socks before this too but didn't get past the first few rows...I dropped down to shorter dpns (5") and I've really enjoyed it.

It took alot of practice for me, for my ribbing to look good, too. I mean, mine really looked bad. :rollseyes: I just kept practicing, and one day I suddenly realized my ribbing looked pretty good! It's a joyous feeling when that happens, huh?

Looks great! I found that I had troubles with my knitting when I was using old dpns that belonged to my mother or grandmother or whoever, and I had ladders! That was unusual because I hadn't had any for a long time. I found some little dpns and that solved the problem. It does take a bit of getting used to, doesn't it. I now automatically tighten that second stitch as I begin it. Works! Congratulations for conquering this! I like the yarn, by the way. Will be very cool socks. Way to go samm
