I made my first SOCK! wooohooo!

I am so excited! It's small, a baby sock perhaps? There are numerous errors, and I had more stitches on the needles when I ended, more than was called for by the pattern. Thankfully those extra stitches were on needle one. I am so excited. Now I have to maker another one.

Great looking first sock! I hope the next one will be much easier for you.

:yay:

Do you really need 2 that size? Have you a handy set of feet for a pair of socks that small? If not, it could be a key chain decoration! Then you can go on to a larger pair sooner. You might check into doing 2 at a time to avoid 2nd sock syndrome. I find having them come out the same length is nice too. Not long ago I thought I was starting mittens but my grandson was over and thought he needed slippers so the cuffs turned into slipper cuffs. :)

Awesome!!! Your sock rocks! :yay:

If you *really* want to iron out the errors, go for the second sock just like this one. If not, you have an adorable christmas ornament for 2012.:)

Otherwise, if you know where you made them, and why, I say go for adult socks!:woot:

How adorable and what a good idea to practice the techniques on a small project. Very clever of you. Now get busy on sock number two!
Thanks for the picture.

Terrific! The more you make, the better you get at it you will find. Again, you did a great job on a first sock!
