...and they only took three months to complete (I can’t believe how fast some of you guys and gals knit).
I must say I’m pretty pleased with them….well, the second more than the first but that’s what experience brings, right? Never having used double pointed needles before, I knit the first sock on the two needles farthest from me, then I took a sock class at my LYS and the teacher showed me how most knitters knit on the needles closest to them, so that’s how I knit the second sock. Did you know that the side you knit on can affect your gauge? I do now. Sock one is about an inch longer and ½ an inch wider than sock two. Sock one also has some pretty bad laddering, especially down the center of the sole. Live and learn. I really had fun knitting these and would recommend it to anyone considering it. I’ve already bought the yarn for my next pair, but I think I’ll take a break and knit something else before I tackle the second pair.
