Hi everyone, I wish I had found this site sooner! I am a beginning knitter trying to branch out a bit and try some new things. I want to learn how to (really) read a pattern and would really like to learn how to make socks!

Welcome! And...have fun on the slippery slope that is knitting socks!

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.

Knitting socks is soooo awesome! Take the plunge. They are pretty much all I knit now. Sad, but true.

Welcome to KH!

Hi Jen, I only joined myself this last week and have found invaluable tips already - long-tail cast on rocks!
I haven't tried socks yet but they seem very popular to knit for a lot of users of this forum.
Hope you enjoy it here!

Welcome! You've found the right place to learn. Heck, they even managed to teach me, so I know you'll do great.

What do you mean guys don't knit?

Linux: because a PC is a terrible thing to waste.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
