I just finished knitting my very first sock! I used Sassy Stripes by Moda Dea and knit the sock with four Clover Takumi bamboo double pointed needles. I was really surprised how easy it was. Really, it was just a matter of following directions. The hardest part was grafting the toe and that wasn’t even all that difficult. (Thanks to the Knitting Help site!)
Of course, I only had one skein of Sassy Stripes, bought a long time ago. So I can’t cast on for a second sock until I get another skein, but I think I’d like to use a higher quality yarn for the second pair.
What I need are your recommendations for inexpensive but nice DK or sport weight yarn for socks? I’d like my socks to last a while. The colorway on the Sassy Stripes is fun, but I’d like to get some natural fibers next time rather than acrylic.
