I've been teaching myself sock knitting for the last 3 or 4 months. I have made 2 pairs for myself on dpns. Then I was talked into giving the 3rd and 4th pairs away for Christmas gifts. Now I'm working on 2 more pairs this time 2 at a time on 2 circs. My first pair I used regular worsted weight yarn. All the others are Lion Brand Magic Stripes. I started a pair of Plymouth sockotta but my dogs got a hold of it and turned my dpns into toothpicks so I'll start that again sometime in the future. No fancy patterns yet but I'll get to that once I have a few more pairs completed. I am really enjoying using circs for my socks so far.
