Well, that's about it! It was so fun to make. I can't wait to make the mate and then get real sock yarn to make more!

Your sock looks great! Did you use Silver's tut to learn? It's a great resource...

It looks perfect!! What is the yarn? It's a great color, and the fit couldn't be better.

Nicely done. The sense of accomplishment one feels when your first sock is done and it actually looks and fits like a sock is wonderful. :happydancing: Is it the Knitty Gritty sock?

I can't figure out how to do that multiple quote thing. Thanks everyone! No, it's not the Knitty Gritty sock. I followed Silver's sock tutorial for help! I really like the color too. The yarn is Cisne Zafiro, 100% acrílico (acrylic), made in Peru. I don't have the lable for that color anymore, but it's pretty much what it looks like: fuscia! (sp?) It's not a great sock yarn--it's DK weight, I think, but I had it left over in my tiny stash, and I fugured I could use it to try out sock-making so that when I can get better-suited sock yarn I will be a more accomplished sock maker! I was truly stunned that it actually fit. It's like magic!

Thanks for all your cheers!

I can definitely see how addictive they can be (socks, that is). It was pretty fast, not hard but not boring either.

But the dark side? I guess I can hang w/ the Sith a bit. :rofling:
