I am almost ashamed to show this here with all the beautiful socks that I've been lusting after. You are all so talented.
My aim is to make one pair of socks. In my efforts, Bells kindly put me onto a Knitty training sock pattern and whilst there may not have been a lot of style and grace whilst doing it and holding the blasted dpns, I made a little training sock. I am so darn proud of myself I can't even begin to tell you all.
Although any helpful hints where they tell you to "join" and how you do it in the first round of the ribbing would be much appreciated. "Join" doesn't really tell me much and it got a little gappy there.
