FO Socks and First Cable Project
My last three days have been busy. I knit my son his socks, and I was going to knit my DH some socks for Valentine's Day. But the look on his face when he saw me caused me to frog that project!

His whine was that he really wanted a HAT! His head circumfrence is 24 1/2 inches. So I went searching for a pattern that I wouldn't have to modify. Stupidly I didn't look at the difficulty rating! This was the hardest thing I have ever knit. Although the pattern was beautiful and it worked together like a dream. I wanted to knit it in the round, but wasn't sure how to do that as they didn't explain how the pattern worked. Now that I have done the project, next time I will knit it in the round.

Next time? Yup, I've got hat envy!

Wow! The hat and socks look great. (Three days did you say? )

Now a hat in the round will be a piece of cake!

Awesome work!! I'm very impressed.

I really want to make some socks, are they hard? And can you steer me in the direction of an easy pattern?

Sock's are not easy, but they aren't hard either.

Silver has a good sock pattern. I use one that is similar that I picked off a yarn wrapper.

For first socks, if you want a funky look, get funky yarn but a plain pattern.

I am 4 1/2 inches into a sock for me... I choose "Paint Box" by Patons... I it!
