Socks, Socks, Socks

I almost called this post, "To Sock, or Not to Sock," but I think that might sound a bit perverse. Yeah, like writing that in the body of the blog makes it any better. (Note to self: don't blog when you should be sleeping).

My coffee swap partner knits the most fabulous socks. I'm jealous - she knits them fast, too. I've been wanting to try to knit socks. In fact, I have some books. I even have some sock yarn. So, you think I would at least try. But. I'm. Chicken.

Summer project: learn or teach myself how to knit socks. Questions: DPNs or circulars? Magic Loop or 2 circulars? Knit one at a time or both together? Any ideas/recommendations?

Get the book, "Socks Soar on Two Circulars" and a couple of Knit Picks circulars and get busy! I was scared at first too but it was really worth stumbling ahead even though I didn't know what I was doing. Socks are too much fun! The Knit Picks are smooth as glass, nice and pointy and about 1/2 the price of Addi's. My daughter and I both "pet the yarn" you are not alone.
