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.
Happiness is catching that dropped stitch while it's still fixable..
The Following User Says Thank You to GrumpyGramma For This Useful Post:
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!
