My first sock ever pictured above! I’ve finished the second one also, which turned out a lot better.
There are a few little errors on the first one – I had a little speed wobble on the heel which can be seen if you look closely. I also jumped onto grafting the toe before I aligned the stitches correctly which made for a wonky toe! ….I actually didn’t realise until I was finishing the second sock, and then saw the difference!
Ooops… I did undo the toe stitching and managed to catch all of the stitches safely before re-doing the toe. They fit beautifully – photos to come ! Just a little blocking to do and they’re finished. I’m really glad I followed along with the KAL at K-Line,and a big thank you to Kristin for the pattern and links to the various techniques. ( It was a first time using magic loop and doing Kitchener stitch!)
The second sock came together quickly over the course of a few movies, and I’m beginning to see why people love sock knitting so much… I may even have picked up a new ball of sock yarn today!
In other news I cast on my new sweater and knitted away for about fifteen rounds until I took a proper look at what I was doing:
**NOTE TO SELF** – drinking wine and knitting is never a good idea…… doh!
