How do you prevent those little holes? Is that where I picked up stitches? My grafting wasn't all that great either, but it is a sock!

They look great! I love the colours. I just finished my first pair too- aren't they great? The grafting was pretty confusing on the first sock, but once I did it a second time I think it was okay.

Looks good! Did you do the stripes or was it self-striping yarn?

Great job! Did you mention what kind of yarn you used?

The holes...try googling this. I got holes on my first two socks, but I quit getting them afterwards. I think it has to do with the way you pick up stitches. If memory serves me right (it's been a while since I made a pair), picking up that last stitch from down lower helps prevent the hole. Don't quote me on that.

Here's (http://www.thedietdiary.com/blog/lucia/558) a link to one site I found for help on the hole thing.

I always pick up the in the corner of working down the heel and the where you left the instep...this helped me a lot :thumbsup:

It looks great!! I just cast on my first pair of socks on Friday - haven't had much time over the weekend to pick them back up though.

really beautiful work! What kind of yarn did you use?
Local, or on the net?

This solved the hole problem for me: I pick up two extra stitches in the row below at the corner of the heel flap needle and the instep needle (one stitch below the right needle and one stitch below the left needle). I do this on each side for a total of four extra stitches on the round in which I pick up the stitches for the gusset. On the next round, I decrease twice on each side where I had done the increases, then proceed as usual.

It is self-striping. I bought the yarn over a year ago I think and just now got brave enough to do the socks. I got it at my LYS..it is Opal brand, I lost the wrap, so I don't know the pattern or anything, sorry...Thanks for your kind words!
