I did it I have now started my first sock. Yes, I am using DPN's because even though I have the book "Magic Loop", I cannot figure it out as yet. I think it is because I haven't tortured myself by making a pair on DPN's.

I have been very busy making fabric knitted purses...they are great. I created my own design and went to work. They are now complete and I love them.

So 20 minutes ago I started a sock...I have 4 rows complete (ribbed pattern)..panicking a little over heels & gussets but I'm not even close yet. No worry I shall seek HELP!!!

I certainly hope everyone has started Monday well. I did! So far so good.

Going to knit those socks and will have much more to write tomorrow.




  1. Congrats on starting a pair of socks! Don't worry about the heel flaps and gussets. For my first couple of pairs of socks I was freaked out by that and quite honestly, it wasn't nearly as hard as it looked! You'll do fine :o).

  2. Yay, socks! I'm knitting a pair of socks today. Er, rather, I'm carrying around socks today, and that's what I'm knitting. I *wish* I could knit a pair of socks in one day!!

  3. good for you.. now you are gonna be hooked. You will be doing magic loop in no time!
