My first pair of knitted socks.

Pattern: Wendy's Generic Toe-up Sock Pattern
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM (I can't find the ballband to find out the colorway)
Needles: US 2/2.75 mm

My first pair of socks are done. I thoroughly enjoyed knitting them. I think I might be addicted to sock knitting because as soon as I finished these babies (which I knit along with the Wicked sweater), I started swatching for a pair of socks for TH. Here's a photo of what his socks look like so far:

Pattern: Thuja from
Yarn: STR mediumweight
Colorway: In the Navy
Needles: TBD

You've made so much progress in such a short time. You've motivated me to give knitting a try. So far I bought some yarn and needles. Now I just need some instruction.

Cute! I find sock knitting pretty addictive. :-)

Were they hard? Did you need assistance? I just ordered my first sock book, though I've knitted a lot before. I'm wondering if I'll be able to DIY-it.

Hey Emily

Oh La La! So, is it difficult to knit socks? I cannot wait, I start my basic knitting class in a week.

Socks are very addicting, so I'm not surprised your starting your 2nd pair already.
