My first socks so far......
I started these with a figure 8 cast on. I tried to do a Judy's Magic cast on but had a hard time with changing those instructions for my left handed self.
At first I got through the toe increases doing one sock and realized how much knitting is in just one sock I knew I would suffer from SSS. That is second sock symdrome. So I cast on a second sock and kept on going.
The thinness of the yarn is giving my bifocaled eyes some trouble but the first of next month I have an eye exam and a new prescription will help me with that problem I am sure.
These are for me and are just a basic toe up ribbed sock. For these I plan to try a short row heel. Nothing fancy and just a lovely shade of green.
