Here's the first picture from my socks... toes are done, working across foot.
I'm using Walk Away yarn by Yarn Bee from Hobby Lobby. When I find the wrapper I will list the colorway as well. I am using a size 3 (3.25 mm) 29" circular needle and the Two at a Time, Toe Up Magic Loop Socks pattern from KnitPicks.
The directions are pretty easy to follow, although I had to pull up some video tutorials on the web to make sense of some of it. I haven't knit in many years, after all.
I used a different cast on than called for because I found it easier. Also, for the second side of the round it says to pick up and knit from the purl bumps. I had a heck of a time until I got out a skinny crochet hook and picked up the stitches with that, then slipped them onto my needle. Worked great! XD
