Well that wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought that it would be. It took me some time to get to the point that I could do it without thinking about it, but I didn’t have to rip-out anything either, which is usually my definition of success.
If anyone is thinking about taking up sock knitting, I highly recommend this site. Her sock video demonstration made so much more sense to me than any of the written instructions that I have found. I think that unless you are a master at understanding patterns, actually seeing a sock being made is far easier to visualize.
Hopefully, I will soon have completed my first sock. They feel so good that I can’t wait until the pair is finished and ready to wear.
