Knitting My First Sock


Class Sock - Front View

I've taken up knitting because a friend of mine thought I should. That would be my quilting buddy. She also proceeded to buy me some sock yarn in anticipation of my desire to knit socks.

Well this year, I've decided that I would be starting to knit a pair of socks by the end of the year. I'm not counting this one because its a practice sock and I'm not sure that I'll make another, although, I'm thinking about doing it for the practice.

So I've gotten through the tough part of the gussets which connect the heal and heel turn of the sock to the rest of the sock - cuff and leg; and the foot.

I'm using "Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch. Her instructions are wonderful, although as a new knitter I'm using other books as well.

More on that later. Gotta go eat dinner!
