I have been using these the whole weekend, I am so happy that I actually understood the instructions and had the patience to make both socks! I have tried kntting socks years ago, but managed to knit only one, then I got bored. Anyway, next time I will use smaller knitting needles, since these socks seem to be a bit too loose. I used these instructions from Novita and they were quite easy to follow, even for a beginner like me. The yarn is Novita Nalle Kukkaketo and I used size 3 knitting needles.
