my first sock

ta da....



i stuffed it with tissues to see what it would look like on (it being toddler size and a little small for me). i think my toe decreasing went a bit awry and my grafting leaves something to be desired (it may also be a little long in the foot)...



but generally im pretty happy, for a first attempt. also first attempt at more than two needle knitting and knitting in the round so its been a steep learning curve.

acknowledgements: i'd like to thank the yarn harlot whos explanation of kitchener stitch was the most simple (do stuff to two stitches on the front needle then two on the back). i'd like to thank everyone in snb blog world for their support and making me believe that socks really were possible. and most of all i'd like to thank a very happyspider for the evangelism, the donation of practise yarn and needles, and help at all stages. go the spider!

now for the pink grapefruit....
