    I can understand the use of nylon, but why would you use acrylic for socks? Acrylic, to me, isn’t absorbent, and I have people whose feet break out and blister if they get wet. Is there any good cotton for socks?

    How real you are is the BEST part of The Crochet Crowd. Not many of us would admit what scares us in such a public forum. BUT, you putting it out there makes us all believe we can do it! 😀

    I have knit socks and screw up the heal every time. But I still love them. I prefer to crochet, I started a set of crochet socks and got stuck on the heal and stopped. It is just sitting in my wip pile. I can’t wait to see the adult tutorials!!! I am so excited!!!!! I have so much sock yarn, I can now get started on my christmas gift plans. I can’t wait! Thank you so much

    Loved this article. Crochet or knit I have always stayed away from socks, now however I want to try, if anyone can teach me it is you! Since I live in Arizona, my granddaughter lives in Florida, thick socks are out of the question. Are these yarns you suggest and/or the patterns suitable for the yarn that is not so thick?

    Mikey, I almost think that if you´d take me by the hand I´d give crocheted socks another try, for somehow they keep haunting me … thank you!

    I have the yarn, just so hesitant to get started. I was even going to try to get taught to knit the socks, but I am more comfortable with crochet. Wondering on the feel of them on the feet. Glad I am not alone ! Good luck Mikey ! I look forward to your video !

    Where is step 4 for the socks? I am not seeing it. I am seriously intimidated by socks too. I am looking forward to your tutorial.

    I”m with you Mickey, crochet socks scare me. I”ve tried but can knit them much faster and like the looks of knitted ones better. Maybe one day I”ll try crocheted ones again.

    Good for you Mikey for stepping outside your comfort zone and slaying the sock beast.
