I DID IT!

*insert little happy dance here*

First sock completed
First sock completed ~ heel shaping
I completed my first ever sock last night! I’m so d*** proud of it. The color is absolutely beautiful and, even though it’s a little bit too big on L. (she is 3 and I knew size 2 would either be a little to small or she’d only get to wear it for about a week and then get some foot growth so I made it for a size 4), she absolutely loves it. And to get this little sock project more on a roll, I’m not getting “second sock syndrome”. After completing the first sock (and showing James the shaping, where I picked up stitches, and all the other things that he has absolutely no interest in whatso ever) I got to work on the second one.

Second sock same as the first
The only problem I had with sock #1 (besides my complete dumbness) was grafting the toes. I don’t like the way the stitches loop up like that. Hopefully sock #2 will be a little better. Although, sock #2 has a hole in it where the instep meets where I picked up my stitches. Anyone know how to fix that part?
After little sock project is over I’m going to get back to work on the afghans.

    Lovely, lovely! So, so cute! Here is how I learned grafting:

    Little gaps are annoying and they say, pick up extra stitches so you won’t have gaps, and then knit them together on the next round. But I always forget and I try to fix it with yarn and yarn needle, at the end. Anyway – great work!!

    Thank you Carolyn! I’ll have to try that next time. And yes, there will be a next time because I love knitting socks.
