I'm debating on when to start my first pair of socks; and thought it might be a good idea to ask the community here at KH about what basic skills I should learn and practice before I start them.
A little info:
*I love basic, modest, and easy projects.(especially basic when it comes to socks)
Skills/Projects I have learned/completed:
*Very novice dpn skills
Info I am looking for:
A good gauge of yarn to use for socks.
A good size of dpns to use.
Whether a set of 4 dpns is ok, or if I should move up to the 5 sets.
Links to good tutorials for socks for beginners.
Common mistakes and how to prevent/fix them
What types of increases/decreases I should learn.(As of now I know how to do the cable increase, and have yet to try ANY decreases.)
Any other info I haven't specifically asked for that y'all might think I should know/look for.
I tried to be as specific as possible. Thanks in advanced for any help you might offer.
p.s. I was thinking of a theme of 'Green horns' as this will be my first attempt at socks, so any thoughts on that would be appreciated.
