Newbie Sock Knitter

I just wanted to introduce myself and set my goals for this KAL. My name's Diane and I'm a student at Moore Theological College in Sydney.

My blog is The Crafty Apple.

I've never knitted socks before (actually, the only thing I've knitted is a scarf) so this is a big challenge for me.

I'm using Silver's Socks Class with some vintage plastic DPNs that looks small enough for a sock. My yarn is some multicoloured DK weight 80%wool and 20% nylon that I scored from my Granny's stash.

I'm thinking after starting this sock that it will be too big to fit into a shoe so they might be more useful in the winter to wear sans shoes.

My overall goal is to make 2 pairs of socks - including the pair I'm starting right now.

I'm really looking forward to this KAL!

Hi Diane from a graduate of two similar colleges. I find knitting very meditative and socks especially so, round and round.
