Look what I made . . .
My first ever pair of finished socks!
I figured if I started small this time, maybe, just maybe, I could do it, and I did! I know how to knit all the elements needed to make a sock, it was just a matter of putting them all together and doing it. Picking up those little bitty stitches along the heel was a real challenge, but I persevered, and did it. They took me a week to knit, lol! A week for something so tiny.
They are so teeny tiny, and so cute. I didn't make them for anyone in particular as we have no babies in the family and none expected in the near future. I just may frame these!
This is the yarn I used and the needles. The pattern called for US #2 but I didn't think I had any so I used US #1. I used the needles on the left at first. I got them on line somewhere. They were very flexible, some kind of plastic. I hated them. So I bought the steel ones on the right, much better for me! I love working with DPNs.
