One Warm Foot...


I did it...I made a sock! It was much easier than I thought it would be, although I did make a few mistakes here and there. Hopefully I can correct them in the next sock. I have the cuff folded down, because that's the way I like to wear them.

I found the pattern I used and an excellent tutorial at this site. It was amazing...very simple to follow. The yarn I used was Regia Sock Yarn in color 5047. Besides the sock, I've also bound 4 of the 5 tablerunners for Christmas and quilted a baby quilt.

Yesterday was my mom's birthday, so today I gave her the gift I made for her...Judy's first One Hour a Day quilt. She seemed very pleased with it...loved the colors and fabrics as well as the design and said she'll use it in her family room. So...thanks to Judy I have made my mother happy...and I have one warm foot! :o)

Good job with the sock! I don't have time to learn to knit socks but you and Judy are tempting me to try and fit it in!

there's a real sesne of accomplishemnt in finishing someonthing like a sock -- useful, doable, and even our "mistakes" tend not to be large enough errors to keep it from being wearable :-) Congrats on your first one...

Looks just toasty warm. I'm still not brave enought to tackle socks. I haven't mastered flat things ... yet.

If you are like me and wear sandels all the time, handknit sox are a perfect item to wear with them in the winter. Good job!

Thanks for the link to the sock tutorial. I have never made socks, but now that I have such good instructions, I just may give it a try. I like the colorful sock you made.
