Yet More Socks

Stephouche's picture

Thanks to all of you who've been providing me with tips and words of encouragement.
This is my second pair of socks. I found a much more form fitting pattern to play around with.
I'm now on my third.
I'm beginning to look at socks as instant gratification and I think they may be building my confidence for more complicated projects-like perhaps a raglan sweater on circular needles.
Now, if I can only figure out how to insert the photo in the body of the e-mail, rather than as an attachment.

If you think socks are instant gratification, you should try mittens. LOL

They look great. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.

Very handsome looking socks Stephen. I remember the feeling as well when I knitted my first pair of socks.

Nice, Stephen. I'm working

Nice, Stephen. I'm working on my first sock now. I've finally acquired the knack for ladder-free circular knitting. I think I may be on my way to acquiring sock fever. But it's early days yet. I haven't even gotten to the heel or even learned how to do it yet. We'll see...

Well done Stephen, it is

Well done Stephen, it is gratifying to have a nicely made pair of socks for not a huge investment of time.
