I should really explain that these are more 'bed socks' or slippers. I'm practicing on larger yarn so that when I use nicer, more expensive sock yarn I may know what I'm doing. I got this yarn for $1 a skein at a thrift shop. Judy's magic cast-on and then I knit the tail along with the main yarn on the next row to double the stitches. I'll increase stitches in some pattern yet to be determined until it looks like it will fit around my foot. What can possibly go wrong? Well, other than the first round I knit with the tail instead of the main yarn. I switched over when I got to the main yarn again.
