Finally I'm knitting socks that are just for me. This is only my third pair of socks and I just love knitting socks. These are the warm, wooly socks for winter. They are made using 100% worsted weight wool. I don't live near any yarn store so I'm limited in what is available around here. I have a wish list going on knit picks though.

I trying to decide if I want to try circular needles. I'm going so well with DPNs and not sure I want to change. Some of the patterns I read call for using circular and I don't know if I can use other needles instead. Also, when closing the toes using the kitchener stitch on my other socks, I have not had any glitches. This sock didn't cooperate because on the very last stitch, it wants to 'pop up' and be seen instead of melding into the rest of the stitches. I pull my yarn snug as I go with the kitchener stitch. And I'm wondering if the math is really complicated in order to customize the socks for different people. I know one size does NOT fit all! Does anybody else walk around with one sock on and one bare foot? Hehehe.

Knitting is the new love of my life! My only problem is I can't knit and read at the same time. Happy knitting!

Thanks for the advice everyone. You know how with some things you think there is only one way to do it? Well, I've always thought that I wouldn't like audio books. I love the feel of books, the smell and just holding someone's great work of art in my hands. But I'm going to give audio books a try. Thanks again. Did anybody have any advice about the kitchener stitch and the little bump at my toe?

Audio books are great while knitting. Socks written for circular needles are easy to knit with dpns.

Oh, yes, there is a solution to "reading" and knitting at the same time. Audio books! I focus on my knitting and keep listening to the book over and over again until I've heard it all.
