Hi there- I just joined, and will more than likely start my socks with the Winter Season. I've looked at some of the socks posted, and they are just wonderful!

Pictureless Socks

This past "season" I learned to knit socks. Since the middle of August I've knit one pair (Simply Splendid Socks by Lucy Newby in stockinette stitch)and two singles -one Simply Splendid in K2P2 Ribbing, the other a Maizy Ruffled Sock. There are two other socks on needles (the first of another pair of Maizys and Ripples from Sockamania). Guess I became compulsive about sock knitting, but they will make great Christmas gifts as long as I do not slow my pace or become victim of the second sock syndrome.

Officially in November I've started one sock for the season. My next challenge - learn how to post pictures.

another newbie

Hi, I just joined this blog, too. I recently finished knitting my very first pair of socks:The pattern is from MagKnits; here's the link. The yarn was gifted to me from a friend and I'm not sure it even exists anymore but it's called Stahl Wolle Socka Cotton. I enjoyed knitting these socks and like the finished product. I'm working on my second pair of socks and they are not going as well (you can read more about that on my blog).

Thanks for having me and Happy Knitting!

an intro

hello all, i've just joined the KAL, so i figure i should introduce myself. im Bella, long time knitter, but very recent knitting blogger. sadly, my camera is kaput, so there will be no sock pictures just yet.

currently working on - very basic pair of "non yarn-snob" socks. i guess that needs an explaination, doesnt it? im currently a tad broke, and also moving soon, so between my stash being packed up in boxes and my wallet not allowing me to splurge on the sock yarn i want, i am beginning an experiment in making socks with (gasp!) acrylic yarn (namely Bernat Satin Sport). to get a feel for what TLC's limitations in sock knitting are, the first pair will be terribly basic. pictures to follow soon!
