Good First time socks  February 4, 2013

I was very impressed with this pattern. It was easy to follow and worked well apart from the stitch count, to me, seemed a bit off for the heel turn. I followed the first two instructions for it, then followed the guidance from the side note.
Apart from that, I really enjoyed following it. Thank you!

Good Super socks!  February 4, 2013

I used this pattern to knit my first pair of socks.

I have completed one sock and am about to start sock two.

The instructions were clear and accurate except turning the heel - I felt that there was a mistake in the number of stitches, but the side note helped greatly.

There isn't a single waking moment for me when I?m not either knitting or thinking about knitting or talking about knitting or wearing something that I have knit. Wool surrounds me in comfort.
