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!

I have noticed I am a tight knitter. I seem to always be fighting trying to slip that needled into to knit. How are you knitting your socks? dpns?

The gusset is the triangle shaped part of the sock near the ankle.

2 socks, no small feet? Earrings! Uh, I guess they'd be a bit large for that. Hey, key rings are great to have around. Lots of uses. For $1, I'd take 'em home.

Cute sock and also a knitterly milestone I have one little 'too wide sock' that is now a tiny Christmas stocking. Mine is red with light grey stripes. It's not functional unless I want to put a tiny toy in there but it's proudly displayed anyway
