Socktoberfest Questions

Here are my answers to Lolly's Socktoberfest questionnaire.

When did you start making socks? Did you teach yourself or were you taught by a friend or relative? or in a class?
I started making socks last year, April I think. I taught myself.

What was your first pair? How have they "held up" over time?
My first pair were Opal Magic colour #1035. They are still going strong and I usually wear them once a week.

What would you have done differently?
They were too big so I ripped them out after a while and re-knit them

What yarns have you particularly enjoyed?
I don't think I've met a sock yarn yet that I haven't adored!

Do you like to crochet your socks? or knit them on DPNs, 2 circulars, or using the Magic Loop method?
I've knit them using dpns and magic loop. I want to try 2 circs one day.

Which kind of heel do you prefer? (flap? or short-row?)
I knit both flap and short row heels. I've also used an afterthought heel which I really like when I want the stripes to be consistent with self-striping yarns.

How many pairs have you made?
Errrr... 17! Who knew? They haven't all been for me. I'm about half a foot away from completing another pair.
