This knitalong is for anyone who wants to take the plunge and knit their first pair of socks. No deadlines, no specific pattern, no pressure. Hopefully we can help each other out, or at least provide moral support!

Here are some starter patterns you might want to try:

Amy Swenson's Universal Sock Recipe
Wendy's Generic Toe-up Socks
The very popular Jaywalker or Monkey

And here are some links that you may find helpful on your sock knitting journey:

Knitty's Socks 101
Silver's Sock Class
Socknitters' CyberSock Lessons

In your project, please let us know what yarn, pattern, and technique(s) you will be using:

Magic Loop, 2 Circulars, DPNs
Toe-up, Cuff-down
Heel Flap, Short Row, any of the may other ways to turn a heel

Good luck and have fun!!
