I finally finished the scarf (k2p2 in Patons Merino) and I thought I would attack making socks. With reading about how Mason :notworthy: was able to conquer it I thought I could also. For my birthday I bought me 2 skeins of Trekking XXL in a varigated blue and I am knitting it with size 3 DPNS and it took me half a day and about 5 or so tries but I finally have cast on my first row and knit one row…and I am done for the night! :?eyebrow: I printed out Silver’s Sock Tutorial and I understand it, I think the problem is the yarn, it is so darn tiny, between dropping a stitch here or there and just being able to get the yarn from one needle to the next, I think it will take me months to do one sock! :shock:
Should I try to make my first sock with a bigger yarn? I would have to buy it as all I have right now is LB Wool, a bunch of cotton and a few acrylics. Any suggestions for me out there?
