I was looking at sock yarn this weekend but ended up not getting any as I'm so worried I will mess up. Where would I find this Silvers tutorial?

Congrats! I have a pair OTN as well but the next time I do them, I'm going to find a patt that uses DK or aran yarn. I feel like I'm knitting with dental floss and toothpicks.

I have found that if I put the DPN that I'm knitting off of on top of the others, it is a little easier.

He said he wouldn't want to wear them because he knew how much work went into them and didn't want to ruin them... I told him that like a sweater, they are made to be worn but he felt they were too "good" to wear. Was he kidding??? I don't know... Very strange.
Yes, he probably was. I have to fight my mom to get her to wear the stuff I make her. "Mom, it's made to be worn! I would rather it fall apart after being lovingly worn to death then sitting on the shelf feeding moths. " LOL

Yay! I have new sock yarn (Knit Picks Imagination- Seven Dwarves colorway), dpns, and Silver's Sock Class printed out (that was a hefty bit- but I don't have access to a computer where I like to knit!) and I have balled one of the hanks so far.

I am about to be right along with you! (when I get some spare time and peace and quiet!)

Thanks for posting this link! I have been amazed at how simply she has written this out. I am getting the hang of the dpn's and it's getting easier to use them. I'm loving this!

Sock are like knitting anything new, you take it one stitch at a time and trust the directions. Look at the videos here and on Silver and you can see that there is nothing hard only new.

Try a baby sock to find out how easy it is.

Knitting socks can be addictive, I just finished my 4th pair, which were the only pair I didn't need help with. (I was known as the "heel and gusset problem child" at my local knitting store.) Hopefully with the great support you have here and the video, you will avoid that. A knitting friend of mine suggested that if I really wanted to understand socks and be able to do my own patterns, that I get the book Knitting Rules, by Stephanie Pearl McPhee. She was right, it was exactly what I needed. I'm not allowing myself to knit anymore socks until I've finished my Christmas projects.
