first sock

Behold my first sock! I made this sock in worsted weight yarn on size 6 DPNs, because that's what I had lying around (Stacey gave me some sock yarn, but 6 was the smallest DPN size I had). I figured I'd make my first pair on cheap synthetic yarn in case I screwed up, and then use the Lamb's Pride I got from Janet's stash to make a couple of pairs for my daughters (the yarn I got from Janet is close in color to the yarn I used for the two pairs of Fetchings I made, which I'm also giving my daughters). By then I should be able to run out and get some smaller DPNs and dive into other sock patterns.

I think for my very first sock this came out pretty well. I have to fly to Vegas tomorrow for a few days, so I'll knit the second one on the plane.

Great choice to start out on thicker yarn and DPNs for your 1st sock!

I really wish I had did that and I would have been much happier!

It looks great! Congrats on your 1st sock!! Now hurry up and cast on for the 2nd one! :o)
