My Socks!!

Still on the knitting adventure I wanted to try some socks. So I did. I wasn't ready to tackle sock yarn yet and I didn't have any needles small enough, so I used some BWM Classic 8ply that I found at the op-shop for 75c. Score! There was 120g on the ball, which was enough for 2 socks.

This was a great easy pattern for a sock newbie like me.


Sock 2 is definitely neater and nicer than sock 1, but I won't discriminate and will wear both. I discovered how to get rid of the hole formed at the heel turn (I think that is what it is called?) when picking up the stitches after doing the heel flap. Sock 2 is on the left, sock 1 on the right.


The Kitchener stitch for the toe is certainly neater on sock 2 :) Sock 2 on top, sock 1 underneath.



There will definitely be more socks in my future!

Cheers!

They're fabulous socks - well done!! I don't dare knit socks...I know for sure sock 1 would never get to meet sock 2 ;)

Yay socks! You're very brave tackling them, I think. Seems to me that the last time I tried knitting I wound up with a big hairy mess of nothing in particular....

Fabulous socks. They're going to keep you toes lovely and toasty warm. I must remember to keep an eye out for bargain balls of wool on the rare occasions I go anywhere near shops that sell wool.
