View Full Version : My First Sock!

Check it out! I have been looking at Silver's (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Beginning.htm) for more than a year now and even tried to start a sock. But I felt just a little too dangerous with all those dpns. So this morning I found a tutorial on using two circs for sock over here (http://www.az.com/~andrade/knit/socks.html) and did my best to combine both lessons.

Well, come this evening and the final result is the socky sock below...weee! I can't believe how not-terrifying it was :happydance:
And I knit it so fast too, less than a day.

There are surely problems, and it's a rather thick sock for my liking. More like a slipper actually. I used some cheap worsted weight acrylic TLC that I bought expressly for the messing up of socks. But hey--it's foot shaped! First I must make his twin (I am a notorious half-projecter) and next go 'round I'll try some smaller needles and some actual sock yarn.

This may be my proudest knitting accomplishment yet. :eyebrow:
