I truly love sock knitting. They're, generally, quick to knit and fairly straight forward. I usually knit my socks cuff down on DPN's, but I wanted to learn to knit socks toe up. Around the same time a friend needed a pattern tested so I decided to do that, figuring that if someone who had never knit socks toe up could figure it out anyone could. Hah! They were much easier to knit than I thought they would be.
