Finished first sock!

I just finished my first sock! I’d been planning for years to try socks, and I finally got around to it. It took me three weeks, I started over seven (7!) times, alternating between size 3 and size 4 and size 5 dpns (I eventually went with 4), and I KNOW I did the toe wrong (that Kitchener stitch was so freaking frightening!), but it’s done. And it fits (both me and my daughter)! It’s a simple pattern, knit on Sassy Stripes (acrylic) yarn…I wasn’t about to use the good stuff on my first pair. Anyway, I think I’m addicted now. Socks are such fun!!!:woohoo:

It looks great! I like how it striped!

:woot: It looks wonderful!! Great job :woot:

that really looks great…love the patterning!

Great job!! That’s an awesome looking sock!! (And I assume your making another :wink: )

Nice job! Congratulations on a job well done! I just love, love, love striped socks! I’m sure that second sock won’t take as long!

That’s a good-looking sock!

Aw, shucks…Y’all are so sweet!:hug:
Yes, I’m starting the other sock this evening.
When my ten-year-old daughter saw this, she said, "Why didn’t you take a picture of ME wearing it? I want MY foot to be on the internet!"
So, I guess I’ll be posting a photo of the finished pair on HER feet…eventually.

WOW! Great job on your first sock. I really like the yarn too.:yay: :yay: :yay:

That looks awesome!!! I love the striping, too.

I love it!! You did a great job. I just did my first socks recently and now I just can’t stop. I’m on my third pair.
