Hi Everyone! I knit my first pair of socks a couple of months ago, and have a problem with them: they HURT MY FEET! I have tried wearing them a few times, and if I am doing anything other than sitting, when I stand up it's like standing on pins. I knit them with Imagination on size 2 needles quite tightly.
So many people on this site rave about knitted socks and I loved knitting my pair... but I cannot bear to wear them. I have no idea why not. Have I done something wrong? Are there tips or tricks from any sock knitters out there? I've been waiting for a place to post this question, and this seems like the right place! Even though I am not a beginning knitter, I am certainly still a beginner in the realm of socks.
I have a lot more Imagination in simply beautiful colors which I would love to turn into quite a few pairs of knee socks, but I don't want to make any more before I can find out why they hurt me. Any and all advice/help will be vastly appreciated. I'd really like to know what's wrong, assuming anyone can answer me that. :)
