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.
