Behold the sock!

Ta dah!



One sock knitted!

I can’t believe I actually managed to finish this one! It remains go be seen whether I can complete the pair but I’m so chuffed with the result. Despite supposedly being a beginners pattern, I found this one really tricky – what with five double pointed needles and a tricky k2 p2 rib to start, once I got into the leg and then heel work it knitted surprisingly quickly. It was also my first experience knitting short rows, turning a heel and also using my ever increasing knitting knowledge to rip my work back and start again, solving problems as I went. In addition to two lessons and a pattern, I made lots of use of these Lion Brand You Tube videos which were really easy to follow

So next up, the completed pair. Hopefully it won’t take me four weeks like the first one!
