My first sock is done! I'm so happy! I was knitting like crazy, over the past few days!

The yarn is Sisu Fantasy, in blues and browns (6457). It's 80% wool and 20% nylon. I used 2.75mm (#2) dpns.

Nice! Did you enjoy your first sock experience? I remember hating mine but, like everything else, it gets easier with time! Your first attempt turned out great!

No, it wasn't that bad. My 15yo already has several socks under her belt, so I could ask her questions! LOL!

It's a little loose, but not too bad. I cast on 60 stitches. Whenever I make a new pair, I think I will cast on a few less.
