I'm doing it! I've actually got around to starting my first every pair of knitted socks. It's slow progress. Tiny needles and stitches. A big change from my big needled felted bags that have been my mainstay for the last few years of knitting. I'm following the Cat Bordhi method. I don't know that I'm 100% right, but it's a learning exercise this foray into the world of hand knitted socks! There's a couple of little mistakes in the ribbing, but rather than unpick and fix - they won't matter for wearing - I think it will be a good reference point for my second and future pairs... I'll be able to see my evolution from novice to expert :)
I'm in trepidation of the heel instructions!
