my first socks

Project Description

What are you most proud of? That they fit and I only made one mistake in my calculations on the first sock that resulted in ripping back half the sock, but mostly that I did it and I love them. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Enjoy it and don't be afraid to re-watch sections over and over again, especially if you are new to socks.

What you will need

  • 4ply yarn
  • don't know the brand as it was given to me from a garage sale

keep going. it may seem hard but keep going. i have done 2 pair but have been stuck at heels for a while . i will be tiring the after though heel on the pair i am working on will post soon..
Debbie 1966 answered:
Thank you for your comment and good luck with trying the afterthought heel. I have since done another pair with the short row heel and I'm currently trying a heel pattern from Ravelry called the Fish Lips Kiss Heel. I've also done a mystery sock knit-a-long that was cuff down, but I love toe- up the best. I know have at least several more socks patterns I want to try. Oh no, I think I'm getting addicted :)
