My first sock!



I made my first sock!! It is the Yarn Harlots , she was on Knitty gritty and this is her "recipe" for making socks. I used lion brands Magic stripes. I happened to find 2 leftover skeins of it at acmoore. They don't carry it anymore. It seemed like a good way to try my first sock. Now I need to get out my Knitpicks catalog and order some good sock yarn.

Wow! That is so great. I can't believe its your first sock ever. I watched the Knitty Gritty episode, too, and loved it. I really need to try and make socks. I tried once, and I could have fit 3 of my feet in it - it was that big!

my first socks were made out of Knit Picks Simple Stripes.. cheap yarn but it wears really well. I prefer the toe-up sock to the top down.. but its just personal preference. I seem to get them done faster toe up!
Your socks are very nice.. Its a shame that they don't sell that LB Magic Stripes anymore.. its a cute yarn. I also like the Bernat Hot Socks.. my son needs acrylic socks because he felts wool to death.

The sock looks really good. Yay for making socks. I love knitting socks, myself. They are quick and satisfying. LOL!

Thank you all!! I used a needle size larger than called for (I bought the wrong size) and I'm glad I did or they would have been too tight. I was looking for the bernat sock yarn but can't seem to find it. Where do you get it?
