Help! I want to learn to knit socks!

No words,no pictures, just a desire to learn how to knit socks. Lots of childhood memories of darning woollen socks. Now I want to learn how to be patient enough to knit the warmest,cuddliest pair to welcome 2013.
I hope there is some help out there

  1. A a few years ago I wanted to learn to knit socks too, friend told me to google "knitting socks on two circular needles" I haven't looked back! I knit jumpers for my grandchildren this way too now.

  2. I have only once knitted socks but it was really satisfying for some reason. I used four needle pattern and found it quite straight forward. Hope you find a pattern you enjoy. Lily. xxx

  5. The socks I have knit so far have been supervised by friends more knowledgable than me, but I have invested in some online tutorials at KnittingHelp.com and hope to knit socks more independently from here on :) Merry Christmas, Linda!
