I just started knitting a little over a year ago and am now trying my hand at socks. I have made three pair so far – the first being ‘throw-aways’ – but they taught me a lot.
My second and third pair I used a wool blend and wore them continously this past winter.
So now that it is summer, I am using Paton’s Stretch Sock yarn for my current pair. Hope they wash up OK.
Previously I made a pair ‘two at a time’ on cable needles, but I found I liked using DPNs better so I bought a second set of needles and just go back and forth between the two socks. So far it is working out great. Guess I have a fear of a drawer full of unmatched socks. 🙂
