Knitting my first socks

Hello Friends!


Yesterday I started knitting a sock by following a very easy to follow video posted on Youtube by Verypink Knits.  I have wanted to knit socks the proper way for so long and this video shows you step by step how to knit socks. Verypink Knits founder Staci is very good at explaining and demonstrating in her videos for viewers to understand and follow along successfully.  She offers viewers the chance to also purchase the pattern on the youtube page. You can find out more about Staci's tutorials and more at verypink.com!

So far I have knitted the short 2 inch cuff and have knitted the heel flap.  I am currently about to start video three of the "Learn to knit Magic loop socks" video tutorials.

The bottom of the sock so far

The top of the sock so far

As always I am so happy that you have stumbled upon my blog! thank you for visiting :)

Take care,

Lisa :)

  6. Thanks for the link, I am already subscribed to Verypink Knits on you tube but had not stumbled on this sock knitting tutorial yet. It looks like a very good way to knit socks without fiddling about with a set of DPN's.
    I love the colour you're using, very funky!
    Enjoy the rest of your sock knitting Lisa xx

    1. You're welcome Linda! she is very good at making tutorials that are easy to follow and clear I have enjoyed knitting the sock because I can actually do it :) yeah I was going to use DPN's but then decided on using magic loop because I have fiddled around with the DPNs in the past and magic loop is easier for me :)
      thank you for stopping by! take care,
