F.O. my very first sock!
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!!!

Great job! My very first sock didn't fit at all, so you are doing great!
