My First Sock EVER!!!
Tuesday, I completed my first sock. I used KP Simple Stripes in Crayon. I'm so proud of this sock because I did it without dpns. DPNs have never really appealed to me. In fact, I don't own any dpns. I must say I the ML method. Anyways, the pattern comes from Socks! The Next Step. and is done cuff to toe. However, there is a toe-up version. I did the pattern with sz 1 40" addi turbo needle. The heel and toe are done with short rows. I've never done them or Kitchener stitch before. The socks are for my mom, who is modeling. She insisted on modeling it now instead of waiting for me to finish the its fraternal twin. When I started knitting the second sock she saw that the stripes would match with those on the sock and she said she didn't want them to match. So instead of the first band of color being yellow it's pink.

Good job!

I have beautiful sock yarn from my LYS and a set of DPN, but I'm not quite ready yet to tackle socks. Your first sock, huh? I think you did a marvelous job!

That is a downright perfect first sock!!!

I am in the middle of Silver's sock tutorial -- 'bout 1/2 way through the heel flap -- it's great how she's broken it down so simply, but I have to say I'm a little askeered to get to the kitchener stitch. The rest, I think I can handle.

Awesome.. Socks are on my TODO List .. and I realllly dont' want to use DPN's.. I never thought of usin the ML method on this.. that would work for me.. cause I love using that method..

How do you do the ML when, as per some sock things I've seen, the heel flap gets knitted (one of the dpns) when the other two don't?

Ohhh if I knew the secret to that.. I'd have to buy some yarn.. and I love how that yarn stripes..
