Now it's time to pic a method/pattern/etc.
A few years back I knit a pair of socks for Joe, and I knit them toe up.
This is my only experience knitting socks. So, this is where you more experienced sock knitters come in. I know you're out there- you knitters who own multiple sock blockers and those special sock needle holders. Those who always have a pair of socks in progress, even if you occasionally decide to work on a different project- yup, I'm talking to you!
I've been pinning favorite sock patterns on Ravelry but would love some input.
What's your favorite way to knit a sock- why?
Should I stick with something basic, or is a patterned sock easy enough?
If there are purl bumps/cables on a sock, do you feel those when you are wearing them?
Also, how do I avoid droopy socks? I want my socks to be snug and fit nicely, the thought of droopy socks makes me cringe a bit.
What was the first sock pattern you ever knit??
Ok- if you can think of any other tips or hints that might help, throw them out there. Give me something to work on this weekend!
