Picture of First sock in progress! Updated pictures!
Well I received my DPNs last week and had some worst weighted yarn laying around so I thought I'd take the plunge and try my hand at socks. I'm using the pattern from the silver's sock online class. I frogged it many many times and finally last night I just got it. I didn't get very far as it was midnight when I finally figured out what I had been doing wrong so at 12:30 I made myself put it down! So here it is. Sorry the picture isn't very great!



I hope to work on it more in a little bit, it just depends on my son (almost 20 months) and my cat, who has found a new interest in my yarn!

I have had a 20 month old or near take an interest in my knitting a few times... it usually means reinserting needles!

Worsted weight makes nice slipper socks. I love working with DPN's Great start.

Yes I am really enjoying it! I thought I would try some slipper socks first since it would be easier to see the stiches, knit quicker and I wouldn't feel so bad wearing them around the house with "glitches". After doing some research I realized I was doing a YO and making another stitch, that's what my problem was before. I wasn't moving the yarn correctly when I went to purl.

I definitely enjoy it, just wish my son would let me get going. Oh well, nap time is at 1! Not too much longer!

Thanks ladies for the replies!

Actually mine was just a cheap old "Red Heart" Color Banana Berry that my mom got me a long time ago and I love the colors and thought, why the heck not! No reason to buy anything nice or expensive for my first pair of socks!

Looks great so far! Way to go. I admire you for jumping into the socks. I have still been afraid to try them. Maybe this summer when I get a break from teaching! :-)
