hello sock

Dear friends, I present to you one beginning of a sock with a serious case of gigantism.

I didn’t have the needle size I needed, but I was really itching to start! So I decided to use an old sock yarn that I have unravelled several times, not worry about gauge and sizing, and simply do one trial sock. So there we go, toe section successfully completed, and turned out quite well, if I may say so myself! Thank you, topperarnold, for recommending Judy’s Magic Cast-On – after a few minutes struggling with the conceptualization, it became the easiest thing in the world and made starting the toes fun and simple!

Have a great week, everyone, and stay tuned for more updates on the Giant Sock. ;)

I started knitting completely by accident, when I was visiting my parents for a holiday in 2008. On a boring Sunday afternoon, I decided to dig through their stash of books to see if there was anything interesting to take back to my apartment. A knitting manual happened to be one of the books I found. I got curious, my mom immediately dug out her old needles and yarn stash (which she hadn’t used in a decade at least), and in a few minutes we were both casting on - she by memory, I by following the instructions from the book… :) Since I normally prefer learning from books, this was ideal.. I took the book home with me, and very very soon - I was an addict.

  1. I’m so glad you tried Judy’s Magic Cast on! It really is easy. I’ve gotten to where I only want to do socks from the toe up.
