View Full Version : My FIRST finished sock!

Ok So it has a few flaws. The toe isn't grafted quite beautifully and there is a small hole on the bottom where it looks like I dropped a stitch and picked it back up and yeah well. I'm too critcal my MIL tells me.

Here's a few pictures of it! Everyone is laughing b/c I'm walking around with one white sock on and one colored sock. I guess I need to do the 2nd one now :)

Also I know what I'm doing for christmas presents for a lot of the family now :)

Great job!! I haven't even tried a sock yet. Is that Red Heart Banana Berry yarn? I made a cardigan for my daughter with that yarn. :D

Yep it sure is Red Heart! My mom had bought it for me when we first started learning to knit. I thought for my first sock it was worst weight and it would stitch up quickly and allow me to see my stitches!

I hope to start on the 2nd one today or tomorrow (this is my bad week so).

You're first sock is beautiful. I just learned to do socks about 2 months ago and am now working on my 3rd pair - yes, I've done both socks in a pair. I hear thats the hardest thing - getting started on that second sock. They are so addicting! Keep up the good work!
