Half way done

Today I learned...

That taking pictures of your own foot is a bit difficult.

I finished my first sock!

It is just an itty bit tight. I don't think my toe turns out as long as the toe in the directions.

I think the sock looks pretty weird when it is not on a foot. The ribbing for the cuff makes it look so skinny compared to the rest of the sock, the toe decreases really fast to a flat topped triangle and the heel looks a bit odd. I'm not sure if that is just the nature of the type of heel used or if it is a newbie sock knitter thing. It looks alright on which is what matters.

One sock down, one more to go! YAY~

That was so fast! You won't be a newbie sock knitter for long at this rate.

I'm impressed. I haven't yet tried knitting socks, but it sure does look fun!
