Sock

I recently (re)picked up knitting and instead of making a scarf as my first project I went with a sock. I practiced knitting in the round on 4 double pointed needles, usually refered to as DPNs. I also wanted to learn cabling, so after practicing on some yarn my mother gave me to practice with, I incorporated some cabling down the front of the sock. This was very much a learning sock.
This sock was knitting using Silver’s Sock Class which has fantastic intructions on how to make a sock and the skills required. The yarn I used is 50% wool, 25% bamboo, 25% nylon. This yarn made a great sock, the wool makes it warm while the nylon and bamboo keep it fairly soft and washable. While I doubt I will offer socks in my shop any time soon, I will probably be offering fingerless gloves once I develop one I like.
