my first socks...unofficial "socktoberfest" since i'm 2 days late!

i'm pretty pleased, except the yarn wasn't that great. a lot of "blobs" of color, but it was a good way to learn!  

anyone know of a good tutorial for grafting toes?  that was a little rough!

thanks for looking!

Congrats on your first pair of socks!
I have yet to drive into this knitting adventure/nightmare yet.
My mom keeps telling me to bring my dpns and sock yarn over.
One day I will.

Nice colors too. Grin

Ooh, nice. I want to make a real pair of socks (I've knit a pair in worsted on size 5(US)'s but they're more house-socks instead of the kind you wear with shoes. I'm scared of the little dpns for some reason! and all those stitches!

Ooh, purty.

As far as grafting goes, I learned from the video on knittinghelp.com

Very pretty first socks!  I actually like the big blobs of pooling...those colours look quite pretty.

And as for grafting the toes, if you look at this site:

http://mysite.verizon.net/vze8mnnp/toesheels.html 

and scroll down to 'Grafting (aka Kitchener)' you might find something to assist you for your next pair of socks.

Did you use a pattern?  I'd like to try knitting some socks sometime... although tiny-gague needles frighten me.  I always hear it's not as bad as it sounds, though, so I'd love to give it a go sometime!  Just looking for a good, straightforward pattern...
