Quick Gifts - Sew-As-You-Go Socks

Need a sock pattern that doesn't require a ribber or a genius at sewing seams?  This is a readers' favorite pattern that I wrote for making low-rise gym socks. 

For best results, use a good hand knitting sock yarn.  In particular, I like 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon.  My sock recipients absolutely love the colorful self-striping sock yarns, which are available in all the local yarn shops as well as Joann's, Hobby Lobby, and Michael's. 

This sock project is a little education in sew-as-you-go technique.  Watch the video closely and then take your time on the first couple of these socks.  Once you master the seaming technique, these are fairly fast to make.
