For a long time now I have wanted to knit a pair of socks. I was always hesitant about it because I have always heard how difficult they were. Well last November I decided to finally just do it. I went to a lovely yarn shop called The Little Red Mitten and I bought some yarn and a book on sock knitting and preceded to teach myself how to knit socks. The book I bought is called Teach Yourself Visually Sock Knitting. There are some errors in this book so if you choose to use it search the book title in your favorite search engine (I used Google) and you will find the corrections. I also found some how to videos on YouTube helpful. Here is my first attempt at knitting socks on 5 needles!
