I made a sock!!!!!
i cant' believe it! I actually made a sock! I have been trying for 3 months and kept frogging, and I admit this is not the best sock ever, it has holes from dropped stitches and already a hole in the toe from poor grafting, but it is a SOCK AND IT IS ON MY FOOT AND IT FITS!

side view with the holes

I don't care, it is on my foot, it fits, and it is socklike...if you look at it and you aren't a knitter you would say "That is a sock" and that is all I care about!

No mate yet! I am still basking in the newfound joy of one sock!
I will probably cast on the mate this weekend though!
