Sock it to me Sunday

My first completed sock!

It's too big, it has ladders and dropped stitches. But it's my first sock and I'm proud. :)

I plan on casting on the mate to this sock today. Unless I get sidetracked by my felted bag.

I've been surfing patterns on the web and haven't found one that I love. So, I'm going to design my own. I was sketching designs last night and even woke up this morning thinking about possibilites. I'm going to felt a swatch of the yarn today to check out the shrinkage. Hopefully by then I'll settle on exactly what kind of bag I want to knit.

Give a little.

Give a lot.

But just give.

it's beautiful kathy? remember my first sock? it was an elf sock with sideways toes! ;-) and as far as the ladders... they will disappear after washed. AND... they'll lessen if you pull the 2nd stitch of each dpn tight.

Looks fantastic! :-)

Dayum. If that is your first sock, imagine how beautishus the ones to follow will be!

I should be so lucky that my first sock looked like that. Who am I kidding? I should be so lucky that socks I know now look as great as yours! :)

Are you a sock junkie yet? Eh?

Congratulations on your first sock. I like the colors you chose for your bag a lot. How about an argyle pattern?
