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.
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!
