Knit Socks in My Future?

Blogged under learning2knit by Tammy on Monday 13 July 2015 at 8:33 am

Since I tend to go barefoot a lot and mostly wear sandals, it has taken me awhile to warm up to the idea of knitting socks. But I have seen so many beautiful patterns for them, and I got to thinking that I do wear socks when it gets cold inside the house, especially in the evenings when we have had the AC cranking all day. So now, I want to make them.

Of course, this is where it gets tricky because I’m still not that great at reading patterns, and most of the sock patterns I’ve looked at seem to pretty complicated for a beginning knitter. And, of course, I can’t just bop down to my local yarn store because that doesn’t exist in sunny Florida, at least in my part of Florida.

Craftsy has some sock classes, but after reading the reviews, I got turned off. I don’t want to turn anyone else off, just for me sounds like it’s over my head.

So what to do? YouTube it! And I found this awesome video that shows step by step how to make a pair of ankle socks, which is perfect for what I need. Now I just need to order some smaller double pointed needles.
