Oh Happy Day!

Oh...my...gawd... Can it be???


My very first sock ever! I promise a better photo soon, but I was so freaking excited that the moment after I was done I literally put it on my foot, made a squealy noise while simultaneously shaking my foot in B's face, and then immediately leapt for the camera. I realize I'm probably overly proud of this little thing, relatively speaking- I mean, come on, it's only ONE sock- but this is a huge accomplishment for me. Especially considering how long it took. I am nothing short of ecstatic that a) It's finally done, and b) I have an actual sock now! That I made! Yay! I love this thing! And now that I have one finished sock, I am anxious to embark on knitting its mate. If I am this happy with one sock, it's staggering to imagine the delight I will feel when I have a whole pair!

No matter how many times I knit them, socks are magical every time. I always take a moment after a heel turn to pause, admiring the ingenious construction and pat myself on the back.

Congrats! I'm glad to see your sock soar!

Yay for socks! great job! from my vantage ponit, that is a very well constructed heel :) are you following a pattern? and are you a knitter of the "socks on two circulars" variety? not that there's anything wrong with doing them on dpns...those are good too...
man oh man does it become an obsession! i've got sooooo much sock yarn in my stash to attest to that obsession, and soooo many needles reserved solely for sock knitting. beware, my friend, sock knitting is THAT awesome :)
now get crackin' on that second one; you don't want to catch second sock syndrome! :)

Congratulations! And wow...socks on two circulars? There is so much for me to learn...

I love it. I'm so jealous. I'm still knitting mufflers (scarfs). It has gotten so cold here everyone wants one. Hopefully the mate brings you as much happiness as this single.

And what a lovely first sock it is! =)*) Socks are the best things, aren't they? Just wait 'till the other one is done! You'll be showing them to your non-knitting friends and there heads will spin in awe hehehehehehe

It looks great. And, do get started on that second sock right away before the excitement dies down, lest you be stricken with the debilitating "second sock syndrome."
