Thanks everyone!

MrsPilgrim - Try it! It is frustrating but you just gotta keep at it! I really want to challenge you to try just one.

I can't wait to make more!

Great job! I remember how motivated and encouraged I was to knit my first sock with the help of this bunch here About 40 pairs later, I'm still addicted.

Ah Lovebug Im just moving out of scarves, I have my first jumper giving me a migrain at the moment, but thanks to Sue and Salmonmac I think I may overcome this cursed thing. I was going to do a beanie next as my first circular project then the socks, but when I do I'll post it up!

That's a fabulous sock--holes and all! Those are just design elements and learning experiences. Keep it just the way it is, and you can always look back on it and remember how you persevered!

GOOD WORK! You should be very proud! Now don't forget to do the other sock right away! Some say, if you don't-you never will.

2nd sock syndrome? LOL Two at a time! I almost succumbed to 2nd slipper syndrome recently.

LBA, socks are cool. Now you've got the first one out of the way, the possibilities are endless....until you run out of yarn.

It actually took me awhile to finish the second haha! I was like "ugh now I have to do the other one." I have been busy with work so haven't been able to knit as much as I would like too. However I sat down today and finished (minus the grafting) the second sock. This one I found easier to knit, but I'm still having issues picking up stitches in the gusset, I'm ending up with holes, and when I put them on, the yarn is really stretching out around the ankle where I needed to pick up stitches. I'll try and get a pic of what I mean but for now here's a top view.

Well done! I just finished a second mitten (the first was made more than a month ago) and I can totally relate to the feeling of a great accomplishment
