I smiled the moment I saw your socks! great color and they look wonderful! I never heard of knttinghelp.com - when I began, my first sock stayed for weeks in the basket, stuck at teh point where the heel begins, but after a friend recommended her book Folk Socks, Nancy Bush became my sock guru! For some reason I understood her directions and ever since then I've been an enthusiastic sock knitter. If you haven't already, you may want to check out that book - it offers different options for heel and toe.
Enjoy your socks!

nice socks I used knittinghelp.com when I learned how to knit socks. I have been knitting socks for a year in a half now. For the toe I leave 10 stitches on each needle before I start the kitchener stitch. I want to knit toe up socks next. My daughters can't have enough socks. plus my granddaughters. I have made about 30 pairs. Working on a scarf for now.

Fabulous! I love the colors and the pattern. I am a bit jealous. I have a pair on the needles right now that need a couple rows taken out and that has stalled me. I now have the inspiration I need to get back to them. Thanks. I can't wait to see what you do next.

Those look nice--and I'm very fond of light blue and brown as a combo. I have several skeins of STR medium, and I thought I'd use all for similar socks in Charlene Schurch's book. I was surprised at the difference in fit with just minor modifications of the stitch (no changes in the number of stitches or any other criteria of the pattern). I think there was a slight difference in the yarn also. I'm not sure how to get around this (aside from swatching). You may find that to be the case if there is any variation between your next try at those socks and these.

Knittinghelp.com is wonderful. I learned how to do the one-row buttonholes from the tutorial.
