Knitting Socks

I don't know if anyone else on Hometalk has got the knitting bug, but we are currently in winter and it is pretty cold her in the mountains in New South Wales. I started knitting socks and now I cannot stop! Last year it was scarves! LOL!

    I just started knitting and socks is next on my list to learn. I love the pics of your work. Really funky and cool!

      @Gina Bosman- Gearin Thanks so much for your kind comments. One thing to bear in mind is use stocking stitch for colour change yarns if you can and save your fancy patterns for plain yarn. The reason is that any lacy patterns tend to get lost in the colour change yarn. Good luck. I knit my cuff down to the toe and use the Kitchener Stitch to close the toe of the sock. You can also learn to knit from toe up to cuff - that way you can avoid doing the Kitchener Stitch. Do post when you have completed your first sock!
