YAYYY!!!  I'm very happy with my first sock.  I think I chose a good pattern it was pretty easy to follow and a fairly quick knit, of course I still have to knit the other sock, I was just to excited not to share  Cheesy 

Anyway, this is going to be one of a set for my niece, I am going to make matching larger ones for my MIL and GMIL.  The pattern, free from Bernat, has a range of sizes for this pattern (4-6 years, 8-10 years (what about in between, lol, weird), ladies & mens) 

it is mishapen off the foot and while I think my foot would fit in there, I don't want to stretch it out at all because I think it's going to be big on my niece as it is, so I don't have a picture of it on, but all the pics of ravelry of it ON foot look really good. 

It is knitted in worsted weight, I used bernat ombres & solids, so it's super squishy and soft too. 

How does it look, veteran knitters? Wink

What good is warmth without cold to give it sweetness?

I am not a veteran knitter but I think it looks great. I want to learn to knit socks too.
I saw some tutorial on the web.

 Smiley A little apart here. I went at the bookstore chapters here in Montreal and they sell socks like that for 25$ the pair. Can you imagine ? They were made in china. There is a lot of money to make socks i guess.

it looks beautiful!

i am about to start knitting my first pair of socks too.  ive been knitting for a long time and have done everything else, but no socks.  hopefully my pair will look cute too.  i bought sock weight yarn for them. and looking at yours i wish i had gone with worsted weight.  oh well! Smiley

I generally try to do bigger gauge stuff for most of my first-time projects, otherwise I get to impatient, I need to see results to ease my mind that I am doing it right.  Also, if I am doing something wrong and didn't waste as much time getting to the point where I'll notice as I would if it were smaller stitches.  Does that make sense?  Anyway, I'm lucky in this case that in addition not not being difficult,  it is cute and comfy too  Smiley

Wow, well done! My attempts at socks nearly ended in tears, couldn't get the silly sock yarn to stay on the dpns!! Maybe using worsted weight would be easier for me. I ended up crocheting some socks instead.

I hear sock knitting is highly addictive - and they make great presents too!
