I just finished my very first sock and I am really happy with it! It fits perfectly and I love the color. I followed Silver's tutorial (so easy to understand!) and used Paton's Decor yarn in "First Spring Varg" color.

Congrats! The sock looks really good for a first attempt. You should be very proud! Silver's Tutorial is the way to go. Now cast on for that second sock right away so you can have a pair to be proud of!!!

Congratulations on your first sock! I used Silver's tutorial for my first one as well. The instructions are well-written.

Have you cast on for the second sock yet?

Is wonderful!!! I am green with knit envy! Of all the fun things to knit...I am still sock-challenged and sockless!

Your knitting is marvelous!

Thanks! I've actually cast on twice for my second sock :( I keep messing up - go figure. I guess I had beginners luck the first time around.

Good work!! Don't you love Silver's class? It is really well done. I made a hoodie for my baby granddaughter out of that same yarn. It has lovely colors and looks very different in your application than mine. It is perfect for socks.

Very cute! I just saw some Bernat Sock yarn at JoAnn's tonight. I'd like to try them but I'm not sure if I'm too new of a knitter and should stick to other things for now.

Those are great. I like the yarn.
My first sock didn't fit me either!
