THANK YOU SILVER!!!
I just finished my first pair of SOCKS!!

If you're thinking about learning I really recommend learning with one of these --> http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/

I did the one toe-up on 2 circular needles

Yay for socks!

DQ, congratulations! I agree...Silver is da bomb when it comes to tutorials. I made my first pair using her instructions as well.

Silver's tutorials rock, thanks for making them!
I did my first sock from the instructions for dpns. Still haven't finished the second one but thats because I've been busy with other things.

Congrats DQ!

I haven't done the sock tutorial yet though it's on my list of to dos, but I just looked it over and something just hit me--

you can cast on all of your stitches onto a single dpn and spread them out. wow, I feel so smart! haha I've been casting them onto all three since I started with dpns

I could not grasp turning the heel until I read Silver's tutorial. It really is the best out there. You ought to do a CD, socks, mittens, you know, in your spare time.
