Crafting On - We Have A Sock!!!

Linking up with Nicole at Frontier Dreams and her Craft On blog hop.

Well, after a couple weeks break, I'm back and I'm so super excited!! I made a sock!!
Hubby commented that if I were to sell a pair a knitted socks I'd have to sell them for $300 for all the time and effort this has taken me!! Then I reminded him that this is just the first sock, I have to start all over to make the next one:) And since I'm going to make a few changes, I actually have to make 2 more!! After trying this one on, I've decided that I need a couple more stitches around and to cast on a bit looser. Also I want the leg portion to be a bit longer, it's kind of an awkward length right now. So I'll make the changes to the next sock, see how it goes and will make third sock to match if all goes well.  

I'm really looking forward to seeing how the next one turns out!! Off to knit a bit more:)


  1. That is wonderful! it is exciting to knit your very first sock! it is good that you see where you would like to improve, then make the changes for the next socks you knit. Congrats!

  2. Well done on sock knitting! Good luck with the second one.

  3. Congrats on your first sock - it looks excellent! I knit 2 at a time now, so that I avoid that dreaded second sock syndrome. Good luck with the second one!

  4. Congratulations on your sock finish! What lovely yarn you are using! Go Shannon!

  5. Lovely stitching!
    I've tried cross stitch a few times, but I guess I'm too impatient for it ;-)
