I DID IT!!! :woot: I've been wanting to try socks for quite some time and FINALLY DID IT!!:woot:

I couldn't have done this without help from lots of sources. This site, of course. Thanks, Amy, for giving me so many skills that gave me confidence to try socks. Thanks to the Soculator (http://www.theknittingfiend.com/blog/lucia/613)for helping me get the right sizing, thanks to Deb for the great tutorial on the Turkish CO (http://fluffyknitterdeb.blogspot.com/2005/10/follow-up-on-using-turkish-cast-on.html), to Silver, for the very clear Toe-up tutorial, (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Intro.htm) which helped in many ways, including the great Bind off,
to Misocraft for the no-hole heel (http://misocrafty.squarespace.com/journal/2006/9/21/short-row-heel-tutorial.html)pictures...

Does this sound like some award show???:roflhard:

As you can tell, I don't always get it the first time I see it, so seeing a variety of techniques in different ways REALLY helped. Those of you who haven't tried socks yet, TRY IT! It's FUN!
