Yes I said frist sock not first pair....namely cause I don't like the yarn (Berroco Sox color 1477) after all and secondly IT WOULD FIT SHREK. I used Silver's Sock Tutorial and stopped at 2 inches and...well....WAY TO LONG :roflhard:

At least you practiced sock construction. They look good to me too!

I'm working on a pair for someone else...and knitting while watching the work cup is dangerous....had to take out the WHOLE heel....well not the flap but the turn and everything:fingerwag:

I'm also double knitting the heel so that it might not wear out to fast...he doesn't mind me experimenting w/ his socks so I will:knitting: :roflhard:

Looks good for a first time sock. I hope I have your luck when I decide to try to knit a sock.

Looks good for your first attempt at socks! I haven't taken that plunge yet ... but I have a pattern picked out. Now I just have to find the time to knit something for myself instead of for others! :woot:

:woohoo: Silver's Sock Class (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Start.htm) ROCKS!!! IT gets you all the way through with pics and VERY detailed instructions. For the next pair I feel comfy trying another pattern that will be more intrusting.....


the only part i don't get is the toe.....mine looked funny and i think i had issues w/ the explaination.....hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Promise it wasn't hard...I was terrified that it would be but it wasn't...promise :) With all the stuff you do it would be a cinch I'm sure:yay:

Looks great! The first sock is always an adventure. But, I think it looks wonderful and the colorway is amazing! :-P
