my 1st pair of socks


Wooo! Hoo!!! I am so excited to share with you all - fellow sock knitters
- my very 1st pair of socks. I knitted with 4 #3 needles and the yarn is merino wool ...a give away gift from Barbara at www.romancingtheyarn.blogspot.com

I used a pattern from a book borrowed from our local library. The cuff of the pattern was only an inch and a half in length. I changed it to 4". However, I am not pleased with the length. Is it possible to pick up stitches from the top of the cuff to knit them longer?

I look forward to learning and knitting lots more socks!
be encouraged
