I'm using Primo from Filatura Crosa for socks. It's superwash (line or dry flat) worsted. It's onsale here.
Get the grab bag and make contrasting heels, toes and cuffs. Super cheap!

Oh boy - SOCKS!
I am so excited to find a thread focused on socks - my new passion. At the suggestion of a cousin I got Getting started Knitting Socks by Ann Budd and jumped in knitting. My previous experience many years ago was learning the knit and purl stitch - end of story. I just found KnittingHelp yesterday and this is my first post after spending so much time on the site I haven't gotten much knitting done!
I loved your socks Steve and got my book out to find that pattern - it is earmarked for my next pair.
I am using 5 DPN and love them. I get so motivated when I get to the end of each needle it keeps me moving along, just one more needle. What fun!!
I keep hearing the term colourway. Is that a term that indicates yarn with a variety of colors?

OMG it is really a sock!!!
I finished my sock. I ACTUALLY FINISHED THE SOCK AND IT LOOKS LIKE ... A SOCK!!!

Ok, so here are a few pictures of DH test driving his new sock. I let him wear the sock just long enough to take pictures and make sure that it fits him.

Here are the pictures of MY FIRST KNITTED SOCK!

I am sorry picture number three is so dark. I was trying to show the heel off, but it did not want to show up too well. Anyways, this is the sock, my very first attempt.

Thanks for looking!

Theknitter, your sock looks really nice.

As for the panda cotton, I haven't used it yet, but if I'm off my yarn diet, I think I'll try it. It's a pity they don't have just white, so I can't dye it.

My moms socks were finished, but when I tried if I could get them on for a picture, the bind off was to tight. Now I've got them back on the needles and I'll knit a few rounds more, so I've got enough yarn to bind off and then I'll bind off.

What is the best method for binding off toe-up socks? I've tried the standard bind off and the decreased bind off which were both to tight.

Here's the first sock of my second pair! They're for the DBF and they're knit out of Austermann Step (he's so spoiled). The pattern is "Just yer basic sock" that I found on Ravelry with slight variations. I liked this pattern except that the heel isn't reinforced so I'm not sure how it will wear and the toe is soooooo pointy. It still fits pretty well. I'm going to cast on for the second one today.
