My first ever sock is finished

Here it is
I just finished it about half an hour ago, and for a first attempt, I'm pretty pleased with it. I got a bit stuck when I had finished the gusset. I thought the SSK decreases looked too big, and I had one more stitch than I should have. But the lovely ladies on the Phoenix Forum helped me out.  Turns out the SSK always looks bigger, and I just did one more decrease to get the right number of stitches. The heel is a bit big, and I probably could have done it a size smaller, but it's a learning curve.  I think I might (just a tiny bit), be seeing the appeal of sock knitting!

Cardigan (of doom)
I have finished the bottom of the body (again!), and tonight I'm going to make a start on the button band. I think I'm going to have to frog the whole collar. It just seems a bit too big all over for my wee shoulders. I'm going to try it with less stitches.


  1. Well done! Are you about to start your slide down the extremely slippery slope of sock yarn stashing?!!
