I Can't Knit Socks

Fairly new to knitting, the ever popular knitted sock continues to frustrate and confuse me.

My first sweaters


These are the first and only sweaters that I have made so far. They are the Weasley Sweater from Charmed Knits. They didn't turn out the way I had hoped, but my boys still wear them :) I definately learned the importance of swatching. These sweaters turned out way too big. I guess my boys will be able to wear them for years to come. Plus, when I was making them, I didn't really understand what drape meant. These sweaters are very stiff. They could practicly sit up on their own. I used Bernat Soft and Chunkee yarn. I am actually half way through my third one but don't have the heart to finish because I know it will be a disaster like these. I want to start over with the right gage and a better yarn. Maybe I will start with one for me.

Looks good to me. Is the H intarsia or duplicate stitch? By the way the models are sooo cute.

Trendz,
Its duplicate stitch. On the next one, I want to try intarsia.
