I just finished my first sock! I'd been planning for years to try socks, and I finally got around to it. It took me three weeks, I started over seven (7!) times, alternating between size 3 and size 4 and size 5 dpns (I eventually went with 4), and I KNOW I did the toe wrong (that Kitchener stitch was so freaking frightening!), but it's done. And it fits (both me and my daughter)! It's a simple pattern, knit on Sassy Stripes (acrylic) yarn...I wasn't about to use the good stuff on my first pair. Anyway, I think I'm addicted now. Socks are such fun!!!:woohoo:

Nice job! Congratulations on a job well done! I just love, love, love striped socks! I'm sure that second sock won't take as long!

Aw, shucks...Y'all are so sweet!:hug:
Yes, I'm starting the other sock this evening.
When my ten-year-old daughter saw this, she said, "Why didn't you take a picture of ME wearing it? I want MY foot to be on the internet!"
So, I guess I'll be posting a photo of the finished pair on HER feet...eventually.

I really like that color combination. Is it Crayon?
