After repeatedly ripping out the sock I was working on and getting more and more discouraged, I decided to try a basic sock to boost my confidence a bit. So today I started working on a pattern I yanked off the internet. this is the result so far.
I think the colours are beautiful! And in my opinion the point of plans is having something to change. Asplund
Aren't you engaged? I frown on premarital sox.
I am, but I'm not only a bag whore, I'm a premarital sox hussy too. It's only one of my Many Many Many Charms. Besides, how else you think I got a hot young romanian man to marry me? Certainly wasn't my girly figure or my daily workout routine (sit ups in the morning, lay downs at night)

If knitting sox will snag me a hot young Romanian man, I'll have a pair off the needles within an hour.
I don't know, I think I'll have to keep my man away from you guys, he's already telling me he thinks PaganCub is cute! All you good looking guys, I don't think I can compete!
I think the basic pattern is the way to go. Once you have the foundation down, you can embellish as much as you want. I use the pattern found here and it is so super simple. I made a pair for my mother for Christmas and I'm currently knitting up a basic striped pair in worsted wool for my partner.
Yours is looking great so far, and the second one will be so much easier :)
Thanks for the link! I'll have to try it for my next pair. I am now taking donations of sock yarn!
Dang I really want to learn. What's the web address?
Everything looks so perfect with it...the stitches...the spacing. The color too.
*ships Bud a carton of encouragement*
Thanks :) I can't believe how fast they're knitting up, I actually hated the color of the yarn when I got it, but it's starting to grow on me. The yarn is Knitpicks Essential and the color is Tuscany Multi. The web address for the pattern is
I could easily become a sock addict. I'm loving knitting these up. I'm also finding the 2 circular method way easier than the time I tried with dpn's. If you have never done the 2 circ method there's a great video done by Cat Bordhi on youtube the address for that is
Come on, grab some needles, don't let me do this alone.
Alright...what size and length needles? I think I may have to throw knitting monagomy into the wind.
I'm using #2 24" circulars as the pattern calls for. I'm getting close to the heel now, but I think it's bedtime. tomorrow I plan to attempt the heal. I'm hoping I'm understanding the directions correctly. It's not that bad, I've seen the work you've done, I KNOW you can do this.
I will come over to the dark side soon....
