Join us as we knit Ann's Go-To Socks from Simply Sockupied!

Here's how a knit-along works:

 

  1. Buy your pattern (in Simply Sockupied, through the app store for the iPad version or through the Knitting Daily Shop for the Mac or PC version).
  2. Buy your yarn (or find it in your stash).
  3. Introduce yourself below and tell us which yarn you're using. This is where you'll share your tips, ask questions, or upload photos, and it's where you'll find support if you're having problems.
  4. Post a photo of your finished socks when you're done.

It's as easy as that. Now let's get started!

I'm a little confused.  Is this the forum for the socks?  I'm going to try Ann's go to socks.  I've been trying to learn to knit socks all winter and so far haven't had any luck.  I've down loaded the e-book.... didn't know it was an application.  And hopefully later today I'll have a chance to start.

Hi, I'm Diana. I will be using a beautiful red-based color Stroll yarn, a superwash wool . I have made several pairs of socks ... some more successful than others. I've wanted to do a knit along (KAL) for simply ages and thought this would be a good place to get my sock knitting on the straight and narrow as well as accomplishing my goal of a KAL.

I live in the U.S. in Tennessee although I'm a transplanted Michigander.

Hi, I'm Melissa. I've never knit socks before so I think this KAL will be perfect! I am working on some slippers right now, so I've learned to pick up stitches along the heel flap. :)

I've been searching for a sock pattern to use my Noro Kureyon sock yarn and I think Anne's go-to socks will fit the high contrast color changes the best. I don't know for sure as I'm fairly knew at using "fancy" yarn!

Hi I'm Ruby.  I've knitted 3 pair of socks from hill down, and 1 pair from toe up.  I have problems with the toe up sock.  I know this will help me a lot.

Hi everyone,

I'm Marcy and I am very happy to have found this forum.  I had a very long argument with a sock last night and the sock won.  I was so glad to find the email advertising this forum and "Simply Sockupied" this morning.  I purchased it for my iPad and hope to finally end my frustration with trying to knit socks!  Now to go through my stash to pick out a skein of yarn!

You know, Marcy0127, I've had a couple socks beat me--several got frogged and one was just plain thrown out. (Hated the yarn and the pattern!) That's part of the reason I find myself knitting simple socks again and again! It's fun to have a challenge, but also nice to be the boss of my knitting.

Marcy0127: You may--I do! Are you thinking Magic Loop, one very short circ, or something else?

Ann's instructions are geared toward dpns, but if you hit a snag, just holler.
