IS IT CHEATING TO BE USING A REAL EASY PATTERN?

I am going to try to learn to knit socks using a pattern that is called EASY BEGINNER SOCK PATTERN, http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/sockslopi.htm . I have about 3 inches done. I feel like I am all thumbs and I am sure that I look like the most graceful knitter if anyone was watching me. It looks good now but when I have practiced before I always did okay until it came to doing the heel. I swear the pattern turns into a foreign language at that time. I have a kind of dyslexia when it comes to doing what I am reading. If someone shows me then I can usually get it but reading and getting that to stick into my brain is another story. But I am going to try and try until I get it. If I can master the ENTRELAC STITCH then I can master this. Entrelac only took me about 3 months on and off......how long is this KAL going to go?? Hopefully I have time. :~D mizmikey

That's a super cute sock...I don't think there is any such thing as cheating in knitting...however you get it done and it works for you, why would that be cheating? Happy Knitting!

I like that sock! I'm doing a very basic one, too. And it's funny you should mention "thumbs". I feel as though I have seven of them on each hand:o)

Easy is best for the first sock you knit. After you get the basics you can branch out on the next pair! Keep knitten' kitten!
