I am working on a horseshoe lace sweater at the moment, my first lace patterned sweater. With that being said, it is time to come out of the scaredy cat closet and learn to knit socks. As soon as I get the sweater done, I am delving into the deep unknown of sock knitting, which everyone says is addictive once you get the hang of it.
For all you sock geniuses, being a newbie to socks should I used dpns or 2 circs? Is the silver sock tutorial the best one to learn how or is something even better? I have a pattern from knitpicks using the circ method doing both socks at once and they say even beginners can make these socks, but I see the silver sock tutorial suggests using 4 dpns.
Also, should I used one straight color of yarn or doesn’t it matter when you are learning, ie is one color easier to see your mistakes or whatnot and should be used until you are used to doing socks? Does it matter which you make kids or adult size as a first time sock maker?
Anything else you think I should know, post it and I thank everyone for the help in any way!
