So I found a great beginner sock pattern on Ravelry and I really wanted to try it because I hear socks are so addicting to make. So far, those people are quite right! I’m still slow, so it’s taking me longer than I would like, but so far things are going well. This is the first time I have tried to knit in the round using DPNs. It’s not as hard as I thought! I was so proud of myself:
As you can see, I have the cuff already finished. The pattern calls for these socks to be really long, but since I never wear tall socks, I am making them more of the ankle variety. Also, check out my “joints” where my DPNs meet. I have to say this is what I am most proud of so far.
See how all my stitches are really tight? I was really nervous that I would have a “ladder” of stitches where the needles meet as I read so much about. The yarn is kind of crazy, but I honestly didn’t think it would be so neon when I got it.
So, I will keep everyone updated on my knitting of the sock. Hopefully I will have an entire pair when all is said and done.
