I knitted a sock for the first time. It was surprisingly fun!

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.

Sock heels are amazing, you guys. I love how this one is a happy rainbow.

    My daughter has a hat made in the same yarn and it’s so BRIGHT and happy, we love it.

    That is one nicely turned heel.

      Owen grabbed the skein and begged me to make him socks with it. I couldn’t deny him! And thanks about the heel. :)

    Great job! However, the sooner you start with the second – the better! I keep forgetting how I made first and then knitting the second is … uh … less fun? :) Carina.

    Beautiful sock! The only thing that surprises me is that you hadn’t made one before this. :-)

      :) I’d taken a sock-knitting class, and made an impossibly tiny one. But this is my first human-size one.
