My First Knitted Sock


My First Knitted Sock

So here it is, in all its glory! My first knitted sock! Ta dah!

It has a few problems, like the foot is too long. Its about 4.5" long from the heel to toe. It should be 3". I got carried away on the foot and just couldn't stop.

Another problem is that on the bottom of the foot, I must have been gabbing because I noticed a nice little hole. I must've dropped a stitch. My efforts to fix it only made it worse. So I moved on.

I also think I got lost when I was decreasing at the toe. I didn't get a nice straight line of decreases to the toe.

I did, however, pegged the kitchener stitch when I was binding off at the toe.

All in all, I love my first sock. Its too small for me to wear, but I love it!
I'll make another practice one and then I'll be ready for a real pair.

I'm so looking forward to it!

Good for you J! I have never attempted knitting a sock, not a mitten for that matter! Looks like you are well on your way with socks now! 8-)
Happy stitchings/knittings! 8-)
PS: Thanks for your visit...

Maybe you can hang this one on the mantle at Christmas, for Rog to fill with treats!
