Sock-A-Long Challenge!

As discussed at the August 1st meeting of the Charlotte Knitting Guild we have started a Sock Knit-a-long whereby all members interested in knitting socks are to choose a pattern to challenge their skill level (all the way from first timers to veterans). We'll post progress pictures, ask and answer questions, and give the various tips and tricks we pick up along the way.

If you look in the sidebar there, you'll see I've provided a plethora of links to various patterns, resources and tutorials. If you have a link you'd like me to add, let me know.

For you first timers, coming from experience, I highly reccommend Knitty's Fuzzy Feet for your first attempt at socks. They're felted slippers, done from the cuff down on size 10.5 dpns. All the steps of the basic sock are there, and if it doesn't look that fabulous when you're done - no worries! They're getting felted anyway!

This is wonderful. I can't believe you got it up and running so quickly. Do you ever sleep???
 
Thanks for setting this up. I'm new at this so I will have lots of querstions. I tried to click on the pattern sites but it says the url is not found. Maybe that part is not ready yet. Thanks for doing this!!!
