I’ve been dying to make a pair of socks, and I’ve finally started. My local yarn store is running a guided sock knitting class this month. Each week, the owner gets us started and then gives us our homework for the week. The next class we move on to the next step. I finished the first sock after three classes, and I just cast on its mate this morning. It’s really not as difficult to knit socks as I imagined, but it is time intensive. Knitting on double points slows me down.
