It's a Sock!

It's a sock. It really is a sock! And I made it myself.

Look, here's my sock:
  • Yes, I'm pleased with myself.
  • Yes, it was easier than I expected, when I finally got to it.
  • Yes, the instructions were lovely and clear.
  • Yes, I'm going to make more.

There are just a few loose stitches on the other side (the side you can't see in my proud pic). I'll be a bit more aware of the tension there next time. The one sock took just about one ball of 8-ply (DK) yarn. I have another three balls of this same yarn, so I could end up with two pairs. My toes will be so warm and I'll be ready to try a finer yarn.

Congrats on a beautiful sock! It looks wonderful. (Don't you feel clever turning the heel?!)

I have a feeling there will be many more to come - welcome to the sock club.

Thanks! I cast on the second one of the pair last night. I don't want to be part of the "one sock" club:) I'm very happy and keen to do more. You've got me at last!
