My First Socks - Part One - Casting On

Wednesday, I began watching the videos from KNIT Freedom's Toe-Up Socks: One Or Two-At-A-Time On Magic Loop Video E-Book.  I learned how to do Judy's Magic Cast On!  Here's what it looks like:

Then I knit the first knit the first row.  Look at me go:

Yes, you are seeing it right!  I do have two balls of yarn so I am making both socks at the same time on the same needles.  This way when I am done one, I am done the whole pair!  I will never know what second sock syndrome is!  LOL!

I'll keep you updated every step of the way!  I have been wanting to make socks since I started knitting.  I am very excited to finally start and I want to share it with you.  Maybe it will even motivate a fellow knitter to join in on the adventures of knitting socks!

The next step is increasing the tow.  Stay tuned!

  1. Which fellow knitter do you wish to motivate? :-)
    Currently I'm still working on scarves...I know, a little late in the season but I'll be good to go next winter :)
