The one where there is one

Well here it is. In all its glory.

First sock done.

Here is the stitch pattern, as best you can see.

Side view.....its so pretty.

I made it a little shorter than I was supposed to. There were two reasons for this. One, I was kind of scared I would run out of yarn. And two, I am so bummed that these are a little big, I just wanted to get them casted off to see if it would work itself out. It didn't. Oh well.


Yarn: Holly Spring Homespun hand dyed by Kathy
Needles: Size 4 DPNs
Pattern: The Knitty Gritty Cookie A. socks

What I loved: I really, really enjoyed knitting this. The pattern for the lace was real simple to memorize so it made my first attempt at lace really fun and easy. And they are Knitty Gritty socks. And even better, Knitty Gritty Cookie A. socks! Need I say more? I didn't think so.

What I will do differently: When I make myself a pair, I will use STR in a lighter color so that it shows the stitches better. That's it. Oh, and I will do one more pattern repeat at least for mine.

And more sock news......I worked on these socks.

The Horcrux socks. Got to the toe on the first one.

And then I remembered these little guys.

See why I joined the 52 pair plunge?

That's it. When can you get together to knit? You name the time and place, and I'm there. I want to see a sock in action! Yours are all so beautiful!

You're ahead of me, my socks are still in balls in a basket, without a needle anywhere near them.
