Greetings Sock Knitters!

I am new to the blog and wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jamie and I have been knitting for about a year. Last October I taught myself to knit from the internet and made a Hogwarts Harry Potter scarf for my husband. I have been hooked ever since and my latest obsession has become socks! While I think all handmade socks are "sensational" here are my two latest creations from the SKS book.

These were done in Trekking XXL using size 1 (and size 0 for the heel) needles. It is the garter rib pattern. I wanted to choose a simple pattern so as not to compete with the varigated yarn. These were so much fun to make - I will definitely do them again!

These were done in some Baby Ull from Dalegarn that I had lying around. I call them my "Casino Socks" because it was 7 repeats for the leg, 7 for the heel, and then...8 for the foot. Just like when I go to the casino, the slots always come up 7-7-8, and thus no jackpot for me! These were a quick knit on size 1 needles. The pattern is the diamond rib from the 8-stitch pattern section!
