*insert little happy dance here*
I completed my first ever sock last night! I'm so d*** proud of it. The color is absolutely beautiful and, even though it's a little bit too big on L. (she is 3 and I knew size 2 would either be a little to small or she'd only get to wear it for about a week and then get some foot growth so I made it for a size 4), she absolutely loves it. And to get this little sock project more on a roll, I'm not getting "second sock syndrome". After completing the first sock (and showing James the shaping, where I picked up stitches, and all the other things that he has absolutely no interest in whatso ever) I got to work on the second one.
The only problem I had with sock #1 (besides my complete dumbness) was grafting the toes. I don't like the way the stitches loop up like that. Hopefully sock #2 will be a little better. Although, sock #2 has a hole in it where the instep meets where I picked up my stitches. Anyone know how to fix that part?
After little sock project is over I'm going to get back to work on the afghans.
