knitting socks

For my second-ever knitting project I knit a pair of socks. I took a class in September or October and it took me three months to finish them. These socks are a HOT MESS. Dropped stitches, extra stitches, knots, wrong stitches – you name the error and these socks have it. On the plus side, this was the perfect project to really learn how to knit. This pattern had it all and I learned how to increase, decrease, and use double pointed needles. I also learned how to read a knitting pattern and “read” my knitting. I even took them to pints ‘n purls where I confidently was able to chat and knit at the same time (a huge step for me!). I feel a lot more confident about knitting after making these socks!
I used worsted weight acrylic yarn and size 7 double pointed needles.
They might not be pretty but they are very cozy and I’m looking forward to wearing them around the house, to bed and inside my winter boots.
