My friend Teresa walked me through grafting the toe with Kitchener stitch, and my first sock was done!
I haven't started the second yet, because I'm working on a couple of projects that have a deadline. But I'll cast on for it soon, and I'm (dare I utter these famous last words?) looking forward to it, and I can't wait to give my kid his first pair of hand-knitted socks.
Sock heels are amazing, you guys. I love how this one is a happy rainbow.
