FO first sock
Yes I said frist sock not first pair....namely cause I don't like the yarn (Berroco Sox color 1477) after all and secondly IT WOULD FIT SHREK. I used Silver's Sock Tutorial and stopped at 2 inches and...well....WAY TO LONG

I'm working on a pair for someone else...and knitting while watching the work cup is dangerous....had to take out the WHOLE heel....well not the flap but the turn and everything

I'm also double knitting the heel so that it might not wear out to fast...he doesn't mind me experimenting w/ his socks so I will

Looks good for a first time sock. I hope I have your luck when I decide to try to knit a sock.

Looks good for your first attempt at socks! I haven't taken that plunge yet ... but I have a pattern picked out. Now I just have to find the time to knit something for myself instead of for others!

Silver's Sock Class ROCKS!!! IT gets you all the way through with pics and VERY detailed instructions. For the next pair I feel comfy trying another pattern that will be more intrusting.....


the only part i don't get is the toe.....mine looked funny and i think i had issues w/ the explaination.....hmmmmmmmmmmmm
