First Sock!

So that sock I mentioned that I worked on in the last post? It's finished!

It's a mix of a couple different patterns as I was just trying to learn construction. This sock will never have a mate. Methinks it will become an ornament for our Christmas Tree or for a family with a new baby girl for her first Christmas. :)

Knitting a sock was not nearly as daunting as I thought it would be. It was surprisingly easy if you put faith in the pattern. As I was working on the heel flap I gave looks of concern to the women at the table and they assured me, just keep going, it will be like magic. They were right!

Yarn: Patons Stretch Sock in Sugar
Needle: DPN-Crystal Palace US 2
Started: 1/31
Finished: 2/8


  1. Yay!!! You'll be addicted before you know it. Isn't making a sock a great sense of accomplishment?

    I never thought I could do it myself, and now, I'm able without a pattern.

    Bravo for you!

  2. Thanks Lisagh! I think you are right about addicting- It's all I want to do! (besides read blogs of course)
