Hi fellow nightowls!|
I've been knitting for years but somehow I've never made an actual sock. Booties, slippers, ipod socks ... but no just plain socks. I'm starting out by making Amy Swenson's Universal Toe-Up socks from knitty with Lion Magic Stripes (if I screw them up at least I'm not out $30 for really good sock yarn).
I've also started a knitalong for other first time sock knitters. If there are any others working on their first socks, please join! The KAL is hosted at myfirstsocks, with a flickr group and a ravelry -along.
