As a long time sock knitter (gazillion years +) I have a few suggestions to make sock knitting easier starting out: 1. Start with a "no design" sock--just a simple leg and flap/gusset heel. 2. Use a heavier weight sock yarn like Socks That Rock and a larger size needle. I constantly knit socks and never use anything smaller than size #2 needles. After a couple pairs done this simple way you will be ready to tackle a pattern like Jaywalkers AND you will be addicted to sock knitting. Hope this helps!

I am thinking of getting back to my crocheting now that school is almost out for the sumnmer. After setting up my brand-new vista 64 computer, I have been pretty busy. We also had finals at school and graduation last week (May 24). It now looks as tough I might have some time to get the hook back in my hand and finish that afghan! Sorry I have not posted for a while! Maggiemama1 Hi, faith and friends! I am thinking of getting back to my crocheting now that school is almost out for the sumnmer.
