I really like my first pair of sock!!!! It came out really GREAT! I dyed this yarn for my dyeing class coming up in Feb at Hissy knit... It will be on 10th!! If your in CA, Sign Up!!!
I plan to knit this sock for my sample of class. IT looks like a tiger skin pattern. I will be dyeing more yarn with this pattern, next month and selling at my store....STAY RETURN~~~~

Everybody think that knitting sock is really hard and difficult. NO IT IS NOT!!!! Just know how to use two point needle togther and follow the directions.

I am so happy you discovered the joys of sock knitting! Obviously this will not be your only pair of knitted socks. Since you like knitting lace, you might want to try knitting "Jaywalker".

Your colorway is just so cool! I love the stripes effect, and the choice of colors. You are a very talented young man!

Hey,

Awesome socks! I'm one of those people that thinks socks are too hard to try. I don't know if I can handle it. Yours look awesome!

Thanks for promoting Canadian music!!! from a Canadian composer :)

That's cool about Kenny's quote. I wonder if he knows that. :)

Your socks definitely rock!
I have been getting the itch, even bought a bunch of needles.
Then I went to a Spin In and won a door prize and YUP, it was sock yarn in colors I would knit.
So I guess my next project on the needles is gonna be socks!
Hope it goes as smooth as yours.
