I'll be honest. Crocheting socks makes me want to learn to knit. It's not that I dislike crocheted socks. It's more that they aren't exactly what I'm looking for in a sock. I want delicate socks that look good with shoes. Crocheted socks are just a bit too chunky for my liking. They're more like slipper socks that are good for wearing around the house and definitely keep your feet snuggly. I'm sure lots of people love crocheted socks for their thickness, warmth, and oh-so-chunky looks. Me? Meh. Maybe if I tried a different pattern or perhaps a solid-colored yarn (because yarn that is self-striping when knit looks pretty crazy when crocheted).
I'm glad I made these socks because it was a challenge that, once completed, made me feel like I could do about anything. Learn to knit? Why yes, I think I can.
