First time for socks

If you were going to recommend a pattern or a book to someone who is going to knit their first pair of socks, what would you recommend? I’m dying to knit some socks. I bought a pattern and some sock yarn at my LYS. Last night I read over the directions and was a little overwhelmed. I’m wondering if I can save my pattern and find something that would be easier for a newbie knitter.

Hmm… I might know of something that could help…

(hint… check out my signature) :wink:

Excellent! Thank you very much!

You’re welcome!

Silver, I just want to say THANK YOU for the sock turorial. :cheering: Although I have knitted for a long time I hadn’t done socks :doh: I know I would have been in a proper pickle without your instructions and pictures and IT (only done one so far) TURNED OUT GREAT!!!


Silver’s sock class is the best :thumbsup:

So Silver when are you going to publish that tutorial with patterns? You could get on Knitty gritty with that :cheering:

Silver’s sock tutorial ROCKS! After you get your toes wet with your 1st sock it’s my understanding that the sock book to buy if you are going to get one is Sensational Knitted Socks, you can view a few pages here

Those are some wonderful “testimonials,” Silver! :cheering:

Thanks for the recommendation, Rebecca.

:heart: awesome! Thank you! I am going to knit some socks! :happydance:
