At last I have some progress to share. I've finished my first pair and the first of a pair and also have the starts to two other pairs.
The first pair is a pair of Patonyle socks which I've called Plain Rib because the pattern consists of a couple of rows of knit and a couple of rows of rib. Very simple and easy to remember.
The next sock is knitted with Wollmeise and is a free pattern available at The Loopy Ewe.
Now that the first pair is done, I am allowing myself another start which should be when I get to try Magic Loop as part of my challenge.
