Yarn Along

My first sock

I know that Ginny isn't hosting a yarn along this week but I just couldn't wait to share with you how my first sock is coming along :)

I did it! I can hardly believe that it is actually taking shape but I'm really knitting a sock *grin*.

Sock Heel

I was a little worried when the instructions got to the part about forming the heel but I just followed them step by step, slipping stitches and knitting and purling and it started to take shape. It's absolutely amazing what just a few knitting stitches can create!

Now if only I could stop but I have a feeling that I may be knitting into the early morning hours tonight just to see how my little sock is going to turn out *grin*.

Hugs,
Rosina

Your sock is looking really great! I want to learn to knit socks, too ... Maybe in 2011 =)

Hooray!
Your sock is looking great and you turned the heel so the worst part is done. At least that seems to be the scary part for me. 2011 will be the year of me knitting my first socks.

Love the colorful yarn you picked.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
