What are you most proud of? I finished them. After ripping them out 6 or 8 times, I finally did finish the pair.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Know the basics of knitting socks. I used the book How to Knit Socks Three Methods Made Easy, by Edie Eckman, I didn't find these easy and the directions were confusing to me. But I stuck with it and ended up with a pair that fit me, however my toe finishing needs work. After wearing them for a day I discovered holes in the toe end. But I will try knitting socks again, may look for a different pattern though.

Hi! I just joined Craftsy and I don't know how long you have had this posted, but I saw your comments and wanted to share what I have learned. I am currently working on my first pair of socks and searched high and low on the internet for an easy pattern. What I found has helped me a whole lot! It is not a pattern exactly, but has served as one for me, it is more basic step by step simple to understand directions telling the basic 'how to'. Here is the web address; http://cometosilver.com/socks/ I am currently working on the One Sock on four Double Pointed Needles pattern. Hope this helps you and whoever might be reading!

Thanks I'll check that out if I ever get the notion to knit another pair of socks, but that is unlikely. Working on baby booties now, and I don't even have babies in the family anymore. Guess I'll donate to them
