It's a Sock Thang

It's Soctoberfest and our lovely hostess, Lolly asked us to share our sock history.

Q: When did you start making socks?
A: April of this year

Q:Did you teach yourself or were you taught by a friend or relative? or in a class?
A:I learned in sock class

Q:What was your first pair?
A:A pair of pink socks using Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Magico

Q:How have they "held up" over time?
A:So far, so good! (My Koigu socks felted a bit on the bottom but I kinda like it)

Q:What would you have done differently?
A:Nothing-I'm happy with them. Turning a heel was (is still) cool.

Q: What yarns have you particularly enjoyed?
A: Lorna's Laces, Koigu, Sunshine Yarns

Q:Do you like to crochet your socks?
A:No or knit them on DPNs, 2 circulars, or using the Magic Loop method? I like using 5 Brittany Birch DPNs (size 0 to 2)but I've yet to try magic loop/2 circs or toe up.

Q:Which kind of heel do you prefer? (flap? or short-row?)
A:I only know how to make heel flaps

Q:How many pairs have you made?
A: 8 to date. (6 for me, 1 for my sister and 1 for my OSSP) 2 FO's: 1 pair of black socks for my Dad and a pair using Sunshine yarns in a pattern designed by Soap Fiber Gal

They look so good all bundled in that basket! (Much nicer than what my handknit socks in my sock drawer look like!)

I love mine too. Wear them as soon as they're out of the wash!

And I really like that one in progress!
