Yay! I’ve finished my first sock.
On and off, it’s taken me about a fortnight.
I had thought that I might use this as a ‘practice sock’ and move straight onto a brand new pair. As I progressed I could see the loose stitches where I had changed between dpns and where I had got better at it. I could see the tension becoming more even, but tighter as I progressed towards the toe.
But having completed it and tried it on I am immensely proud of my first sock and can’t wait to start its mate.
I am going to seek out a pair of cable needles. Ones with a very short loop. I might find these a little faster. Or I might just end up with achy wrists. Anyone tried these?
KnittingSarah’s sock KAL starts very soon. 15th January. I’m off to gather supplies this afternoon. It might be wise to take just a limited amount of cash and leave the debit card at home.
Love, Lucie xx
