First Sock April 21, 2008

Filed under: Knitting — christinamyers @ 2:59 am

So I found a great beginner sock pattern on Ravelry and I really wanted to try it because I hear socks are so addicting to make.  So far, those people are quite right!  I’m still slow, so it’s taking me longer than I would like, but so far things are going well.  This is the first time I have tried to knit in the round using DPNs.  It’s not as hard as I thought!  I was so proud of myself:

As you can see, I have the cuff already finished.   The pattern calls for these socks to be really long, but since I never wear tall socks, I am making them more of the ankle variety.  Also, check out my “joints” where my DPNs meet.  I have to say this is what I am most proud of so far.

No ladder!

See how all my stitches are really tight?  I was really nervous that I would have a “ladder” of stitches where the needles meet as I read so much about.  The yarn is kind of crazy, but I honestly didn’t think it would be so neon when I got it.

So, I will keep everyone updated on my knitting of the sock.  Hopefully I will have an entire pair when all is said and done.
