This is my first post, my first blog and I'm working on my first sock! After doing some research on Ravelry, I decided on Cookie A.'s "Monkey" pattern. From what people have posted, it is an easy sock for a beginner - I hope so! I chose Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn in a colorway that I am really liking. It should go well with a lot of my things in my wardrobe. They're colors I'm drawn to and I'm really liking knitting with it. So far there is no evidence of the dreaded pooling that I've read about. I have four repeats of the lace pattern done (the pattern calls for six) and then it's on to turning the heel and the gusset. I'm a little apprehensive about turning the heel, but I'm hoping it won't be too hard.
I already have two more sock patterns with the yarn lined-up after I finish these! I know that I'm going to be making many, many more pairs!
