yesterday i finished a sorta-secret gift, so i took the chance then to cast on and finally learn how to make a pair of socks before i had the tie to hesitate. it was really intimidating at first, and a lot of bits are far from perfect but i’m happy to say now that it’s actually really simple to do, if a little fiddly. my tiny 3.25mm needles feel so fragile compared to my 5mm or 8mm ones, so i’ve been very gentle with them while knitting.
as for the yarn it’s the knitpicks comfy sport i purchased in july–super soft! but i’m not sure how they will wear as socks. even while knitting bits of the yarn came off and stuck to my pants, probably not a good sign.
well whatever happens i’m sure i’ll be really proud to finish these little socks. i really hope they fit–the dainty little needles have made me afraid to try the wip on–if they end up not fitting i’ll have to find the pair a good home.
oh, and for anyone curious, i’m using silver’s sock class as an actually-not-a-pattern for these socks. i recommend them to anyone who might be as intimidated as i first was about making socks!
