Since all of you are my mentors on this effort - thought I'd show you show this FIRST sock (the training sock pattern with worsted) came out. I'm thinking not too bad for a 1st sock.

right side




left side



Showing the loose hole area where I picked up the stitches
Is this decent for a first try?



And then the toe, head on. I tried that stitch as to knit on one needle, then purl on the other back and forth. Looks a little holey yet. Maybe I did not get a stitch very well.




I'm rather pleased with it. Not super great, but recognizable.

What do you think?

Wonderful job on your first sock! Congrats on completing it. Now it's time to make a mate to it and find a pair of little feet that they will fit. :)

Angie, you did a great job. My first sock was rife with learning experiences and absolutely not useable at all. You'll find that with the few little little things you encountered that you'll be turning out amazing socks in no time.

I'm guessing that nobody told you sock making is addictive. Bwa-a ha- ha- ha!!! You'll soon get a craving for sock yarn and small dp needles. Don't fight it.

Maura -
I've already spend Christmas money on a bamboo set of american size 7s to do the matching sock to the photo'd one, and a set of #2 and a $15 skien of sock yarn that will make a pair.

Then I saw a beautiful turquoise blue/blue varigated that's really soft, that's worsted weight - so I figure I can use the size 7's to try a full sized pair out of that yarn.

Yep, I can see another addiction forming, (as IF I needed another addition related to fibers, and fabric and yarn and such).

Great job Angie. Making socks is a lot of fun and addicting. I made DH a pair for Christmas and he loves them. I now have to make another pair for my sister. Mom wants me to make them out of this varigated red yarn she had. I don't know how they will turn out since its acrylic.
