Sock No.1

I've knitted a sock!
Ok. So it's not the best sock in the world.
It has slightly wonky ribbing...
It has loopy bits sticking out at the toe...
And the bit where I picked up stitches on the heel flap is, well, you'll see...
Oh, and I dropped a stitch, here...
It is sock-shaped though, and it fits!!
In fact, once on, you don't really notice the wonky ribbing, dropped stitch and sticking out loopy bits.
So, on to sock number two I think, toothpicks (a.k.a. 2.5mm bamboo double-pointed needles) at the ready and with much excitement of filling up my own and my family's drawers with hand-knitted socks.
(Just my excitement ...of course I haven't actually asked anyone else if they'd like some!).


  1. It's a lovely sock. Congrats on competing it. I love the yarn colors. As to the wonky ribbing, I find that if I have a knit stitch as the first stitch on each on my dpn it helps keep the ribbing even. Have a great weekend!

  2. Your sock is so lovely!!!! Little mishaps and all! You must feel very proud when you wear it/them... as I hope You will make its mate!
