i got a sock!

Posted by Hello

here it is, just before finishing the toe. i looked around like a madwoman for a yarn needle but couldn't find one (i left my regular knitting bag at work on friday...DUH!) so believe it or not, i managed to do the kitchener stitch with my hands. it was a little tough because i had never done it before and had to rely on pictures in one of my knitting books, but i finally finshed it. i cast on the mate this evening as well...don't want the first one to end up an orphan!

yes, i'm still working on the first sock!

so, um, i finally figured out how to turn the heel and pick up and knit stitches on each side of the heel flap. got that done and am now working on the "foot" part. a few more inches and i can decrease for the toe then i'm done...well, then i have to do it again on the next sock and hope for the best LOL my nana will love them, i'm sure.
