FO - my first successful socks!
I started and finished this sock during my trip to China...did most of the knitting on the airplane. I used my handdyed self-striping and Kristin's excellent sock tutorial, found here http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/So..._Beginning.htm Now that I'm back in the U.S. and have so many other crafty things to do, I hope I manage to finish its partner before it gets neglected!

Lovely! You're right....making the second sock is always the hardest part. Just get it on the needles right away!

The same thing happens with making wrist warmers. Anything that has a set of two is easy to set aside.

By the way, I love your yarn. You're really good at making that!

Nice job! I also started this sock class, unfortunately I was using metal DPNs and they just weren't working! So Im getting some wooden ones this weekend, and starting again. I only hope mine turns out as nice as yours!

Thanks for all the support and compliments! Socks are fun to knit...I just wish I had more time to knit lots and lots of them.

Carolina - I started the other sock right after I finished this one, but so far have neglected it for 5 days already. :(

Tammy - make sure you show us your sock when you're finished! I generally like bamboo needles more than metal ones, but for such small diameter DPN's, I actually thought I might try metal ones next time, since I constantly felt like I was going to snap the toothpick-like bamboo needles in half.
