GrumpGrandma - key chain good idea, (considering a bought a big sack of key chains rings at the flea market, why? a $1, how could i say no? Keychains for everyone)
LoveBugAngel - thanks - whats a gusset? That is the side correct? where you re-join to get back in the round?
justplaincharlotte - thanks - I agree, I am going to do sock #2, to fix those errors. I never thought a piece of clothing could make me so happy!
salmonmac - thank you, I wanted to see progress, the smaller sock, let me see it sooner. Plus truth be told, I started it 6 times if I started it once, and it took me three days. Not 72 hrs mind you, but each night I did a portion. I had a chance to get comfy with the rounds, and just about when I was ready to change it up - yep - the pattern did that for me.
I got confused in turning the heal, I kept losing count of what I was doing. I did the heel piece about 4 times before I got it 'right'
I even did the kitchner (sp?) stitch to close it off. What a great feeling to see it come together at the toe so nicely
thanks again everyone, i will be back next time with two big girl socks!
