Well, I finished my first sock last night, and I can't believe that it actually looks like a sock! And it fits!!! I am so proud of it that I actually brought it to work today (imagine walking through a school with one sock in hand
I used the first pattern from the SKS book along with a printed copy of Silver's tutorial (thank goodness for those wonderful photos!!!!!!).
I have to say that making socks is MAGICAL
Turning the heel is the COOLEST thing!! (Picking up stitches is not.)
I surprised myself by completing the kitchener stitch with ease. The toe looks amazing!
Since I have some mistakes, I'm going to wait to post a picture until I get the mate completed. I'm going to put the mate (which should have fewer mistakes) in front of the first.
Thanks to the wonderful gals in the chatroom on Friday night for helping me get my foot pattern straight (hence where the mistakes lie).
Just wanted to share!!!
