Well I’ve finished my first pair of socks and I learnt lots
I started these with the smallest needles I had but they were too big. So the socks are a tad in the large side
I also learnt that even though a yarn might say 8ply it doesn’t mean it’s going to be the same thickness.
I used a different yarn on the heels and they were small compared to the rest of the socks. So they look a bit funny
Hubby was very nice and said he would wear them proudly
I now have the proper sized circular needles and have started a second pair Already they look much better. More like socks should look like
So I’m happy I gave it a go. I’ve wanted to learn how to knit socks for a long time.
Hopefully I’ll soon be able to just make them without even thinking
Got to keep learning and trying new things
