*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.

I think I can! I think I can! All done! No second sock syndrome for me!

    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.
