As promised last week, I will tell you about my first socks... :-D
But, ok. Yes, it's true, if you count the Duck Feet I made for my nephew, these are technically my second pair of socks. But since these are supposed to fit a specific set of feet and not just be cute, these are My First Socks. :-)
I decided to try a simple, toe-up pattern.
This first sock was cast on using the figure 8 method. It was a little loose, and I wasn't able to tighten it up later as the pattern suggested. I wanted a square toe, so perhaps it's because I cast on so many stitches?
The only mistake I know of is that I did not finish the heel with the one remaining stitch on the correct side. I think I missed one of the K2Tog's with the gusset at the beginning. So I didn't have the one stitch on the knit side to join with the instep and "prevent a hole."
I just have a few more rounds to go before I bind-off. So I'm pretty excited about this little sock. :-D
I hope you're having a great Fiber Arts Friday. Please be certain to see what everyone else has been up to over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder. :-)
