A Cozy Sock in the Makings

I had some time this morning to cast on for one of my small projects from my "to do/to learn list". My first sock. I must have done two swatches to get gauge. Then I CO and just started knitting like crazy. Now, I've mentioned before that I'm not a sock person. I don't get the "I need to make one of these" feelings/urges when I see hand knitted socks. BUT, I have to say this one caught my eye.

So, I'm knitting up a pair for me. A trial pair, I call it. I have a funny feeling I will end up wearing these a lot and DH will end up with a pair as well.

I can now scratch off my list: teaching myself to knit in the round with DPNs and for knitting my first sock (still a work in progress).

Not bad, huh?

They are looking good so far! What's it like knitting them? As easy as you thought?

Trina...this version is pretty easy to knit. At first, I couldn't "visualize" the instructions. After some research and looking at the structure of a hand knit became clear. Once I'm done, I'll do a quick review of them here. ;)

I am just like you when it comes to knitting socks--I just don't get the appeal, but I recently saw a pair that had a penguin on them. They are adorable, but I have to learn intarsia first. Your socks are looking great.
