I have been wanting to try knitting socks for a long time.But somehow I didn't got to it, thought it was too difficult for me.This week I received this lovely pair of socks knitted by my penpal Lene.



She also gave me the name of a site with online video's explaining how to knit socks. So I looked at that site and decided that it was finally time to start knitting socks.
First I found it very difficult to handle those 4 needles, but soon I got used to it.
And here is finally the start of my first sock !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



And this is what it looks like this morning. Now I have to get started on the heel, that's a very difficult part for me. So I have to check some video's first.....



And here is my clapotis.
It is finally beginning to look like a clapotis. I really like the colour changes of the yarn. I just can't wait to have it finished.

Welcome to the world of sock knitting. I am always fascinated by the way they form on the needles.

Well done! And I just love the yarn you are using, so bright and cheerful. I do not think I have ever knitted a pair of socks, I believe the heel would be just too much for me. I can not wait to see how you get along.

Monique,

Those socks look great!! Yo're a pro. Can you please share with me the online link that show you how to knit the socks!! I've knitted one pair but am still struggling a bit with the needles as well.

By the way, your beede stitch holder will soon be on the way.

Good work!! Just keep on it and you'll succeed. After all, it's not that difficult to knit socks. If I can do it - you can.
Love Elzie

The socks are looking good so far! I need to watch that online video too. I'm determined to knit socks for my coworkers (thank God there's only 2 of them) for Christmas. What's the link? Thanks for visiting my page. Don't be a stranger! :)
