View Full Version : FO: My first sock

I had a TIME with those stitches toward the end
when I didn't have that many left to do. The toe is more pointy than
what I wanted, but then again, my foot is slightly pointed so I guess
it looks ok.....the Kitchener stitch gave me a fit until I got used to
it...hopefully the next toe will look a little better.

Yarn is Trekking XXL (I forget the name of it) knit on dpns size 1.

I'm starting sock #2 tomorrow.

Great job! :thumbsup:
I just finished my first pair of socks recently and trust me, the second sock goes much easier, and looks neater too! :lol:
Kitchener stitch is sooo awkward at first, (i had to rip it out and do it 3 times to get it right on the first sock) but it seems to get easier too. So it only gets easier from here! good luck with number 2 sock!
