The first sock is now finished. I'm pretty proud of myself. It actually fits too.

This is a pic using my crummy webcam. I'm going to try and go get my good camera out of the truck later today.

Thanks folks. I am a bit surprised that it turned out like it was supposed to.

And yes, that is the Options case hiding under the sock. :rofl:

I am debating whether to knit the second sock on the DPNs or to try it using magic loop on the Options. I feel like it'll go faster on the Options but the gauge may not be quite the same.

Honestly, I don't think it'll make enough of a difference to be concerned about. Plus, you can always blame any unevenness on the fact that it's your first pair of socks! :thumbsup:

That looks wonderful! You should be quite proud of yourself!

GREAT job! :cheering:

BTW, you should go ahead and order the Options dpns. I cannot imagine knitting my socks without them!

Congratulations! I made my first sock last March and I've been knitting socks ever since. I've made over a dozen pair, but I only have 2 for myself. My mom loves them, they don't cut off the circulation in her legs like her storebought ones do. She wants a pair for every day. She's got 3 pair so far.

Thanks again everyone. I've cast on and started the second sock. I'm going to give the magic loop method a shot.

Wow, that looks really great! Did you use Silver's Sock Tutorial? (I think you mentioned that in another thread?)

Excellent job! Now where are you getting the instructions for magic loop? So far I've only used dpns 'cuz ML and 2 circs have intimidated me.

I also want to try toe up.

Very nice! My first pair of socks were awful compared to that!! Now I do them without a second thought. And I still wear that awful pair to remind myself of how far I have come.

You won't need that reminder. You are Knitter with a capital K :teehee:

I still following Silver's Sock Class. I'm just adapting it a tad for the ML instead of 4 DPNs.

I stopped by Mom's a little while ago and of course took my shiny new sock with me. She looked at it, handled it, looked at me and said "YOU knit this?"

:rofl:

I think she was surprised I was actually able to knit it correctly. She did say that she thought it was very good and that she wanted me to show her how to do it when she's ready.

That sock looks really good, Mason. I would not have guessed it was anyone's first knit sock, and definitely not someone's second actual thing they knit!
And already you are adapting the sock tutorial for ML. This means you "get it." You understand the whys and wherefores of pattern construction, etc.
As someone else mentioned, you truly are a natural knitter. I think somebody should alert Vicki Howell and get Mason a gig on Knitty Gritty. :cheering:

Wow! It looks wonderful already! :cheering: Great job Mason! :thumbsup:
I never tried socks because the thought of turning heels are always haunting me and making me go :thud: :rofl:
So did you get the "sock curse" too? :teehee: :roflhard:

That looks absolutely amazing! I love the colors, and I love the design. I've never done Silvers sock class before and have yet to make a decent pair of socks. Kudo's to you for being able to make such a pretty one so quickly!!!
