Sharon R. here with my first socks posted. For a long time I wondered what was so great about knitting socks, even after making a couple of pair. It just seemed to take so long. Then a couple of months ago I decided to try it with 2 circular needles - another thing I never understood the appeal of, because I'm quite comfortable with double points. But I had a trip coming up and I liked the idea of being able to knit socks on the airplane, so I gave it another try. Wow, socks go so much more quickly with 2 circulars. I am now hooked.
Here's my latest finished pair, made with Taos (not really a sock yarn). These are "house socks" for my sister whose feet are always cold. I used a pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks with a baby cable rib. She loves them!
