Finally! My first sock
I have to admit, there were times I didn't think I'd ever want to do another one, not even the mate for this one, but now I think I'm in the groove... The second one is underway. I gotta say, I love magic loop!

Keep up the good work! It will not be long until you can knit socks in your sleep.

It's Patons sock yarn - I got it at Michaels.

Artlady - Ha! We're all in awe of you, you've got nothing to prove by knitting a sock!!

KnittingNat - I never really had an urge to knit socks before, and just did it to prove something. But yes, I'm seeing where the addicting part comes in - I can just throw this thing in a bag and take it anywhere! Can't do that as easily with a big ole afghan.
