Ok, I hunkered down and I finished the sock. It fits a little tight but it looks so great. I need to work on grafting the toe but My first sock is DONE!!! YEAH!!! Now off to cast on for its pair!

Ok, not only did my yarn become a big mess and had to spend tons of time untangling but now I dropped a stitch four or five rows back and want to FROG the whole sock. I'm at the foot. Any help on how to pick up the stitch that far back?? Should I frog back to that row??

HELP!! I'm setting the sock aside before I start just RIPPING the whole thing to shreds instead of frog it. :)

Happy Knitting!! :)

EDIT!!!! I calmed down...did some research and picked the stitch up. This sock business has been a roller coaster but what's crazy is I'm still loving it!!

Sorry I'm crazy and thank you for the support.

Sock Wars!

I know I'm a new sock knitter but I had to get involved with this. Even if I get killed right off the get go at least I tried right?? You should all go check it out!!

Hope everyone is having a great day!! I'm off to work on the gusset and toe of my sock. :)

I turned the heel!!!

Not the greatest pictures because I messed up the settings on my camera. It's too late and I don't feel like fixing it now. :) Just wanted to show everyone that I turned the heel of my sock. I'm so excited. It was surprisingly easier than I though. I'm thinking this gusset part will be harder. I'll keep you posted. :)

Happy Knitting!!!

A contest......

I wanted to let all of you know that I am having a little contest at my other blog, knitinggal. Please stop by to enter for the fun prize. Thanks!

First sock...second start.

Two weekends ago I bought some Sockotta yarn and cast on but I didn't like the feel or how it was coming out. There was a huge gap where the rounds connected. I decided I wanted to try another yarn. Long story about that one but I decided when I got my first package from Knit Picks to cast on with the lovely Essentials yarn in Tuscany Multi that came in the mail. :) I cast on last night and here is my progress. I'm in love with the yarn and for a start I think I'm doing ok. I'm nervous to get to the heel but I'm hoping to get some help when I get there. :)

Well off to softball...I'll post a pic when I get further along with my first sock. :)

OK, OK...

You convinced me. It's not a great start, but it's a start. Sorry about the blurriness but the second sock is cast one, started, and will be finished before I cast on a different pattern! Stay tuned.
