I knit my first socks way back in junior high school - or to tell you the truth I fought through the first one half-way and mother knit the rest, and the second sock.
My second try with socks was just a few weeks back. I knit a sweet pair of baby socks, and asked who else but mother to show me the heel. Again, even though this time the knitting was not a pain but a pleasure, mother knit almost half of the socks.
This is my first attempt to knit up a pair of socks without help from anyone!
I chose a basic pattern, which is good, Lana Grossa Meilenweit Magico yearn and 3mm needles. I'm afraid the project might take ages to finish, as the yarn knits up slowly, and the finished sock should be a continental size 46... might take me a while.
