I’m doing a knitted gift exchange with a good friend of mine. She wants socks. I’ve never made socks, but I’m happy to try. In the past I’m made fingerless gloves ( http://public.fotki.com/enigm7a/other_crafts/knitting_crochetting/dsc00262.html) and booties ( http://public.fotki.com/enigm7a/other_crafts/knitting_crochetting/dsc07583.html).
so I’m up for a challenge.
Anyhoo, I’m not too worried about knitting them, except I have no idea which patterns are better, toe up or cuff down. I’m not sure of the pro’s and con’s. If there are any at all.
I bought sock yarn but I would love advice on patterns for relative sock beginners. PLEASE HELP!
