Finished my first sock!

Here's a shot of my first sock. It ain't pretty, but it's comfy. I hope to do a better job on the mate to this one. I somehow goofed up the kitchener stitch at the toe and got things inside-out. That's one reason why the toe looks so square. I also should have started the toe decreases a little sooner. I had a lot of fun making this one and will cast on the other sock today. My wife does these socks two at a time on circular needles.

Congratulations on your first sock! I'm hoping to tackle socks for the first time this summer. Glad to hear you had a good time with it.

I think it looks great! As long as the toe isn't uncomfortable, who cares? GREAT job.

It's a hell of a lot better then my first sock. What yarn are you using?

Thanks for your kind words. The yarn is nothing special. Red Heart sport weight acrylic in Dusty Green.

That's what I get for being uppity. Nothing special is what I've been looking for in sock yarn and the lys doesn't carry "nothing special". Off to the WalMart.

Great job! If the sock fits.........wear it!

Outdoes my first attempts, for sure - the only redemption was trying to make the same mistakes twice so they'd match.

Looks fantastic. Cant wait to see the pair!
