Am I kidding myself? Can a new knitter knit simple socks?
Hello, my name is Natrasha, and I am obsessed with socks. I had crocheted a couple of pair of socks, but I kept seeing knitted socks, and they just seemed ...well... so much more awesome than crocheted socks.
So I decided that I had to learn to knit, just so I could knit me some socks.
I can knit and purl and am pretty confident with it, but I have never knitted a scarf or a dishcloth or anything at all, because all I can think about doing is knitting socks. I do have many, many swatches of knitting practice.
Am I ready to try knitting a simple sock pattern? My heart says yes, but the frustration factor is there to be reckoned with, I know. Are socks really best left until after I've made myself do a couple of dishcloths or scarves? What say you?
