Attention everyone: I grafted toes! You can't even see a seam!

It's such a miracle - I never imagined I could knit a decent sock, much less do any "fancy" finishing techniques that make it look slightly less amateurish.

Thanks KnittingHelp.com. Cuz I grafted toes! :D

I've only finished one sock, but it's here:

It was pretty hard to show a closeup shot of the toe, as it's a shimmery-type yellow, but I tried (and it looks great in person - I promise!):

I used Silver's Tutorial (just like everyone else! lol) to figure out how to graft the toes, and the instructions were so unbelievably clear; it was just as good as if I had been taught in person. Highly recommend :thumbsup:

you did a great job! :inlove:

My first sock looked like it was made for sasquatch! It was ginormous! It took me a while to figure out the tension thing

Wow, that's a NICE sock! Much more way exceptionally nicer than anything I've been able to produce.

I'll send you my sock yarn, you knit them for me? LOL

I learned just about every technique I knew (which I admit is still limited), right here at KH. I'm a visual learner, so the videos are what helped me the most.

YAY for 1st toe grafting successes!! :cheering:

hehe congrats - isn't it great when you first graft toes! I still get such a huge kick from grafting when I do socks. I love how it just looks like you knitted all the way around =D

Conrgats! I feel that way every time I learn something new in knitting that feeling of triumph is what keeps me going strong I think!
