socks are real fun. I made them for years in a lot of variations. They really are super easy, too. Once you get the hang of them. no knitting tricks used that one can not learn.
But I lately found this sock here that I really need to try: it is knit straigt "from side to side" from cuff to tip with short rows and then joined. I will just replace the cast on by a provisional cast on and knit away. Sounds fun to learn a new sock
