I started knitting my first pair of socks today! It's kind of scary and exciting. I am being very official about it, I even knitted up a stitch gage to make sure they will end up the right size when I'm done. I'm knitting from the toe up, two at a time. I am notorious for only finishing one of any given pair. I figured that it might be a little harder to get use to doing two at a time, but at least I know I will finish both at the same time and they should be the same size. The pattern is from the book, "Socks From The Toe Up", by Wendy D. Johnson, they are called Serpentine Socks. They make a very neat serpentine cable effect without using a cable needle.
So far I am still increasing up the toe, but they seem to be going well. I will post pictures and my progress as I go. Wish me luck!
