This week I knit my very first pair of socks! I have always been a bit intimidated by the idea of socks but these turned out so amazing, I’ve actually already cast-on a second pair.
I selected the Hermione’s Everyday Sock pattern by Erica Lueder. Over 20k people have successfully made these socks, so I figured it was a good pattern to start with. Since these were my first socks a few things weren’t clear in the pattern but fortunately Simply in Stitches posted a step-by-step video series on YouTube that answered my questions.
I need to get the right size circular needles so I can work both socks at the same time, but I already started my second pair and will use the DPNs again.
The socks fit perfectly and I can’t wait to wear them to work tomorrow! My only concern is that I love high cushion socks and I worry these might not be warm enough for my toes but we shall see. I went ahead and cast-on my next pair of socks which is with the same yarn but in a blue colorway.
Have a great week.
