I took a two night class at Yarn Barn in Burke Va with a friend to learn socks on two circular needles. We both had started, on our own, a pair when a class at at another LYS was cancelled but knew we needed the guidance of a teacher to get through the heal. I used LB Magic Stripes Bright Spring pattern.
For the 2nd sock I frogged the heel no less than three times when turning it to get the stripes to match. I have to say every mistake that can be made was made in learning and making this 1st pair.
