Sock it to me Monday – I’m going in.

I can put it off no longer; It’s finally time for me to dip my toe into the sock knitting pool.

My tiny sock circular has gone walkabout, but I got the hang of using DPNs after making two lots of fingerless gloves so I’m just going to stick with them.

I’m using Mothy and the Squid yarn, in the Peacock Flower colourway that I bought during Local Yarn Shop Day last year. Less than a year in stash is pretty good for me!


Obviously I haven’t got very far yet (it took me at least five tries to get the stretchy cast on right), but I’m feeling surprisingly confident about it.  The pattern I’m using is the basic sock with integrated heel on Ravelry, suggested by Crawcraft Beasties as being good for sock beginners.

Wish me luck!

  1. I do, Hannah – I do ! I’ve never knitted a sock in my life, so I admire your determination – and also refusal to allow your knitting horizons to be limited.
    Goodonyermate ! 😀

  2. As a fellow first time sock knitter, I wish you good luck with your sock knitting! Half way through one sock and I feel like I’m finally getting the hang of how I like to use dpns.

      1. I’m the same! I find it so much easier to use 4 rather than 5 but sometimes it’s easier to divide the stitches up on 4 needles and knit with the 5th even though it slows me down with knitting.
