FIRST SOCK IS DONE!!

I have finally completely my first sock! I really liked the DVD- it made it so much easier than reading a pattern. I'm a very visual person. It fits fairly well (just a tad large- not much. I'm planning on wearing the pair of them around the house so they are really comfy). While I was surprised at how pointy the toe seemed, I guess I have pointy feet because it went on fine and didn't seem quite so exaggerated. The Kitchener stitch was not too bad for grafting the toes and I liked the clean seam.

It was interesting to see how the self striping yarn responded to the heel and toes. (G called it a time warp sock- I'm sure that translated to "that sock rocks! Can I have them when you knit its mate?")

While I want immediately cast on for the matching sock, I am not going to do it. I am going to get back on my cabled scarf and finish it, along with a few other UFOs.


Here's the bowls that my SP8 spoilee sent me. What a sweetheart! I love the creamy colored one, too, but the intense color amd its variations of the red one is amazing.

Here's a closeup of the interior of the red one:

Wow, Kaylee!
You are an advertisement for that Sock I DVD, and now I MUST get it into the player and learn how myself. I just got some sock yarn (first ever) from an online store in a colorway called "flyfishing," and they have my BIL's name all over them (an avid sport fisherman in E. Washington). Imagine that he would be my first recipient, but they are a good choice for Christmas since he's the man with everything. You probably know one of those. Anyway, your sock rocks and is a real inspiration. Also, I'm so glad to hear someone saying the Kitchener stitch toe was not hard. I'll have faith and give it my all.
Congrats!
