41  First Sock (!) Question in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by gaucamolegreetings on: November 29, 2006 09:47:55 AM
I knitted my first sock.  I'm pretty happy how it came out, except it's not real snug.  I was wondering why you think this is.  I did do a swatch and checked the gauge.  I thought of 2 reasons...  Either because I have a small foot (size 5) or because I used yarn from an 100% cotton sweater I unraveled from a thrift store.  I'm wondering when I go on to make another pair, should I use needles to obtain a smaller gauge to account for my small feet, or just chalk it up to the yarn and use something more stretchy?  That is, after I make another one identical to this one so I actually have a pair.  Can you believe I slept in one sock last night because I was so proud of myself?    Tongue

P. S.  Thanks to everyone here as I would have never had the motivation and courage to try to knit a sock if it wasn't for finding craftster.  Ok, this is nothing special, the most basic sock out there, but now I know I can do it, the possibilities are limitless, right?
