My First Attempt at Knitting Socks

I knew the day would eventually come when I would attempt to make a pair of socks.  I love sock yarn and can't seem to resist picking up a few skeins when I find them on sale, well a basket full of sock weight yarn later and never an attempt to do anything with it, I decided it was time to start.  Plus I thought it would a nice gift for a special person going on a big trip this year. 

This is what I've accomplished in between daily household chores on a lazy and rainy Sunday with Paton's sock yarn, size 3 double point needles and free pattern I picked up at Michael's but it can also be found on Paton's website. I wonder how long it will take me to finish a pair?


  1. I would love to knit! I guess I'm not too old to learn lol. I'm lovin' the colors you picked, they are some of my faves :) I bet it won't take you long at all to finish a pair!

  2. awwh thanks, at this pace however I'll be doing one sock per week. and you're definitely not too old to learn. :)
