I’ve been so inspired by all the socks I’ve seen on Tami’s Ami’s blog, that I decided it was time to learn. Plus I started working out at a crossfit gym, and tube socks are seen quite frequently on deadlift days, so I know I’ll get good use out of a pair of long hand-knit socks.
I joined the “Sock Knitter’s Anonymous” group on Ravelry, and a lot of the folks there learned from “Silver’s Sock Class“, which is a free online tutorial for learning sock knitting. So far I’ve had to supplement a little with you tube videos on joining the round with double pointed needles, but after the first couple rows I started picking up speed. It actually took me 2 nights just to get the first few rounds done. My boyfriend, seeing my progress, commented that I would be knitting these socks “the rest of my natural life.” It was pretty funny, since that’s exactly how it felt. I managed to get a couple inches done last night. The pic is as of this morning.
