Sock Attack!

I just got another project off the needles!  The second sock from my first sock attempt is complete.  This is a great sock for newbies (Ravelry link) to learn the basics of sock knitting.  Staci Perry, knitwear designer and knitting instructor for the Knitting Nest in Austin, has a great pattern for learning the basics and the pattern includes some very well done videos of each step.

Here is one of my lovely socks:

I love the color!  The yarn is Cascade Yarns 220 Quatro Moondance.  I still have have half a skein left so I might have to make some gloves to go with these.  These socks are great for wearing around the house with slippers.

I start my first real sock this weekend.  This time from the toe up!!

Have a great weekend!


  1. wha would it take to get a pair of toasty socks for myself?

  2. I could probably make you some better looking ones! Ya'll probably need to keep you toes toasty up there in D town. Looks like there will be more snow tomorrow. What a weird Texas winter
