I just finished my first pair of SOCKS!! :woot:
If you're thinking about learning I really recommend learning with one of these --> http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/
I did the one toe-up on 2 circular needles :yay:
Yay for socks! :woot:
Congrats! Silver's the best! :cheering:
I agree Silver Is the best ever for socks. Now you gotta do the other one:roflhard:
DQ, congratulations! I agree...Silver is da bomb when it comes to tutorials. I made my first pair using her instructions as well.
YOU GO GIRL!!!
You're so very welcome, and [COLOR=Red]THANK YOU[/COLOR] for the tip! :muah:
I just wish I could have given more because you deserve it :hug:
I've done the other sock, I've been ordered by my mum to do another pair for her though! :passedout:
Silver's tutorials rock, thanks for making them! I did my first sock from the instructions for dpns. Still haven't finished the second one but thats because I've been busy with other things.
I haven't done the sock tutorial yet though it's on my list of to dos, but I just looked it over and something just hit me--
you can cast on all of your stitches onto a single dpn and spread them out. wow, I feel so smart! haha I've been casting them onto all three since I started with dpns
I could not grasp turning the heel until I read Silver's tutorial. It really is the best out there. You ought to do a CD, socks, mittens, you know, in your spare time.
:teehee:Spare time?"Spare Time"??Omg.. that looks so funny when you stare at it long enough. Spare Time. :roflhard:
I've bookmarked it and it is on my list to learn to do this year. I'm aiming for February... eeek, now I've publicly made a deadline...:doh:
My thank you as well, Silver and just throw in a few minutes for tea with each of us in that "Spare" time! LOL I know it must have taken countless hours to produce these videos and we all appreciate your help. Mary
Thanks Mary, but make no mistake, I did not make the videos here at Knitting Help. That's the work of Amy & Sheldon and they do indeed deserve many, many thanks of their own!
I wrote the sock knitting tutorials linked in my signature. :hug:
OOPS! I meant all the photography and knitting to each photo. Slip of the keyboard~ The sock tutorials ARE what I learned to make socks from.
Yep--and she's not just good at sock tutorials--have you seen those bags or read her blog?@?@??@?@?I think her tip jar is a good idea--it's a great way for us to give back what we would have spent in lessons/patterns, etc.
