I knitted my first sock over the last few days (took me a few hours). It was a toddler sock - I am just heartbroken that it doesn’t fit!! Too small, and I even upped the needle size too (I used the North Country Cotton baby socks pattern).
Anyhoo - the socks were a lot of fun (thanks to Amy’s videos, otherwise I never could have done them) but it got me thinking… if I were to knit socks for us to wear, and used sock yarn (which is pretty thin yarn, right?) and the smaller needles which a lot of patterns seem to recommend…
Don’t those socks just take FOREVER?? I like the idea of knitting socks, but if it will take me as long as, like, two hats or something, I’m not sure I’m ready for that type ofcommittment! Esp. since I’m still not a very fast knitter.
Please, spill the beans not only on how long they take you, but what you like about sock knitting. I want to be a convert… LOL.
