I'm Knitting Socks: Top-Down

After seeking counsel from you sock experts out there, I decided to knit my Quick and Easy Lounge Socks using the top-down method. It appears that a beginner is best knitting using the top-down way. Mitts are knit "top-down". I've knit mitts. So, at least the beginning was familiar!


I just turned the heel witht the help of Silver's Sock Class. Without this great photo tutotrial with very clear instructions, my heel would not be ready for the next step...the gusset!

Thanks for your advice. Next pair, toe-up!

Happy sock knitting!

Love the colorway you are using. I haven't done socks in a while, forgot how fun they are:) That would be a good summer project. Thanks for the inspiration!
