I had a plan to knit socks and bought a few knitted socks books too a few years back. Procrastinate a lot and never end up knitting it until now. They turn out ok and I really enjoy knitting them even though I had to unpick a bit 'cos one was shorter then the other.. lol!! I think I was supposed to use Fingering weight yarn (4ply??) but these are knitted with 8ply. Turns out very thick but super-duper comfy and my daughter loves them :)
The pattern is called 'A Nice Ribbed Sock' by Glenna C. Free pattern is found here.
