I left off in the last blog with me knitting round and round with some decreases, here is a pic of how the sock is looking as I am knitting away. You will notice that I am using a blue notebook to set it on, that way you can see it better. The sock is brown and I wanted everyone to really be able to see what it was looking like.
Doesn’t it look good? It is nice and thin and the Paton’s sock yarn is stretchy so it has been great to work with.
This next picture is when I am about to Graft up the toes.
I was so happy to get to this point and to know that it really looks like a sock. And yes I tried my sock on every chance I got just to see how it was going. One of the other reasons I really enjoyed working with the DPN’s.
Now on to the grafting, I had to read these instructions a couple of times just to be sure what I was going to do. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it turned out. And the finished result looks like I knitted it.
Now my sock is complete!!!! I was so happy to have finished this I have been so scared of making socks it is kinda laughable. But, I am very proud of the final result, now I am ready to make more and more.
That is my foot with my very pretty sock on it. It is very soft and I can’t wait to make the kids sock. I am ready to make the funky designs and never buy store bought socks again.
