I'm finally done with my first knee high sock. Both socks were knitted on the magic loop at once up until the ribbing, on Addis US size 2. Then I separated them to do the ribbing on a size zero Addis, used the 2 circular method for the ribbing portion. I really don't like knitting with the size zero needles. I must say the stitches look very nice, but takes way too long. I know now is not the time to get the SSS (second sock syndrome), but I'm ready for a new project. They fit my foot, ankle and lower leg like a glove. I feel like the top may slide down. So, I have taken in the second sock a tad more. I don't think I will do another pair of these unless it is one color , striped or a variegated yarn. I used the Queen Kahuna method (Crazy Toes and Heels Sock Book). I must say the knee high sock feels great on my feet and leg, very very comfortable. Very nice sock experience.
