OMG it is really a sock!!! I ACTUALLY FINISHED THE SOCK AND IT LOOKS LIKE ... A SOCK!!!

Ok, so here are a few pictures of DH test driving his new sock. I let him wear the sock just long enough to take pictures and make sure that it fits him.

Here are the pictures of MY FIRST KNITTED SOCK!

I am sorry picture number three is so dark. I was trying to show the heel off, but it did not want to show up too well. Anyways, this is the sock, my very first attempt.

Thanks for looking!

Sorry the colours on the picture are not very accurate. It is late at night to be taking pictures and inside pictures don't turn out too well in here I find. Anyways, I will CO number 2 sock tomorrow and go at it again.

The only thing I don't like is the way the grafting turned out. It sure is NOT invisible unless I did it wrong. Perhaps the second sock will look better. We shall see.

Anyways, I have earned my bed tonight and that is where I am going right now!

That looks great Christine! Don't worry about grafting, the first time I did it, it looked like poo. The second time was a little better and when I did it last night it looked like it was supposed to-you'll get the hang of it.

He`s a pretty good sport. He is pleased that I have found a hobby that makes me happy and fills my empty hours, so he is willing to model, take pictures, even put up with my all-night knitting binges. He is a great guy!

That first sock is magical isn't it!? It looks fabulous! :yay:


You may need to adjust the white balance when your indoors. Incandescent lights make everything look yellow. ;)

Thanks. I was so pleased with everything except the grafting. My ummm grafting (if that is what you can call it) looked like caca. I hope it gets better next time.

White balance... OMG, I only just figured out how to change the date on this camera because when the batteries ran out last time and I installed new ones, I had some funky date in 2005. I have no earthly clue how to adjust the white balance.

Hi Ann:

There are two tricks to knitting socks. The first one is Shandeh`s YouTube video on joining to knit in the round. The second one is Silver`s Sock Tutorial. With these two things at your disposal you can`t go wrong. Best of luck with your First Ever Hand Knit Sock!

:woohoo:

You (and others) have inspired me to attempt my first sock. I don't have the yarn yet, but I do have the dp needles. Your first sock is wonderful!

You did good! Can't wait to see how you feel about the toe on this second sock.

Congratulations! Your first sock looks fantastic! I'm sure your dh will cherish them.

I find grafting toes, for me, to be hit and miss. I just bought "Knitting Circles Around Socks"; she has a nice illustration of Kitchener stitch that actually makes more sense to me, as I have something to visualize and am hoping my next grafting session is a little more successful.
