I cast on for the socks last night. These are my first pair.
I guess I'd forgotten how awkward size two double pointed needles and thin yarn are to work with. I had to start over twice before the stitches stopped twisting, and I found my tiny sock knitting groove.
I'm knitting away now, thanks to Vicki for the monkey sock inspiration.
My monkey sock knitting progress may be minimal at this point, but hey, I started, and that's worth something.
