I'll admit that I enjoy a challenge and did my first pair of socks mostly because everyone seemed to think socks are hard to do. (They aren't).

I enjoy the knitting and it doesn't matter if it's a scarf or something more complicated, it's a very relaxing activity.

I have this terror of the sock! I want to knit them so badly but those darn needles just wiggle around and I can't figure out how to not make these huge ladders. I get frustrated and give up and go do a dishcloth!

I appreciate your answers so much. I'm glad to know there is somewhere to go to talk and people know what I'm talking about! I was knitting a dishcloth tonight, the one from the Mason Dixon book and just thought, how can people not knit?

By the way, the dishcloth is working! It's almost a miracle to me how those weird stitches make something! Yarn and two needles can actually make something great! It impresses me every time.

Gulp. I did try on two circulars and that was easier. I'll look up the magic loop next. Thanks!

It's much easier than 4 DPNs.
