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.
do another one? egads! I guess I better for the practice, even tho I am itching to try this on a full sized adult sock pattern.
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.
GrumpGrandma - key chain good idea, (considering a bought a big sack of key chains rings at the flea market, why? a $1, how could i say no? Keychains for everyone)
LoveBugAngel - thanks - whats a gusset? That is the side correct? where you re-join to get back in the round?
justplaincharlotte - thanks - I agree, I am going to do sock #2, to fix those errors. I never thought a piece of clothing could make me so happy!
salmonmac - thank you, I wanted to see progress, the smaller sock, let me see it sooner. Plus truth be told, I started it 6 times if I started it once, and it took me three days. Not 72 hrs mind you, but each night I did a portion. I had a chance to get comfy with the rounds, and just about when I was ready to change it up - yep - the pattern did that for me.
I got confused in turning the heal, I kept losing count of what I was doing. I did the heel piece about 4 times before I got it 'right'
I even did the kitchner (sp?) stitch to close it off. What a great feeling to see it come together at the toe so nicely
thanks again everyone, i will be back next time with two big girl socks!
