Sock Numero Uno!


I have finished my first sock! Go me! It isn't perfect, but I think it's a pretty decent sock.

Yarn Harlot's sock recipe from her book.

co 60 on #2s, 15 rows of 2x2 ribbing, 30 rows of stockinette, heel flap (about 25 rows), gussett and decreases according to her recipe, 26ish rows of stockinette, then a round toe following these instructions (I went through to the K4, K2tog... knit four rows plain step) and then grafted the toe.

Issues: holes along the heel flap where I picked up stiches, slightly loose around the ankle (even though the upper part and the foot part are fine) and funky bump where the toes were grafted.

Sock #2... I'm going to start with 56 stitches and see what happens...
