Last week I posted that I was in the middle of my first sock. Now it's done. I will cast on the second one today. This is Opal Sock yarn from the Elements line, can't recall the number.

There are a few flaws in this sock, but nothing to prevent it from behaving as a sock should, I think my second one will be better. I used Silver's Sock tutorial which was very clear and easy to follow.

Well, I certainly can't tell that there are any flaws in it. It looks great on your foot. Good luck with number 2!

And good for you, starting the second one right away! :D

Another sock knitter! The second one is always the better when you learn a new pattern. My first socks are filled with booboos, but no one can tell. Wear them with pride.

Great job! I really like the yarn you used! What size needles, what kind of yarn, etc?

Just say no to SSS (second sock syndrome).

Now I finished the mate! I tried to start the next one at the same point of striping as the first one, but it still was a little off, especially noticable on the feet. But my feet will usually be in my shoes.

My 6 y/o daughter took the photo for me. She did pretty well.

Try making a Christmas Stocking first. http://www.lunaticcafe.com/Patterns/Christmas%20Stocking.pdf
You only have to make one, you can use ww yarn which is a bit easier to manipulate to learn the "mechanics" of sock knitting. The tutorial mentioned above is amost identical to this pattern, so you can switch back and forth if necessary for more detailed instructions on any given step.

I've made three of these stockings in as many days. It really is easy and now that I know "how" to make a sock, I think I'm ready to forge ahead and get some sock yarn!

Those socks look great. I think they are beautiful. Wear them with pride.

They look great! I can't believe how closely you got the stripes to match! My socks w/self-patterning tend to end up more like fraternal twins:)

Wow! And you got your stripes to match, too!! Good job and they are super cute!
