This was my first sock. I only made 1 because there were many many mistakes and it turned out too small for me. It was my first time ever using a pattern, using DPNs and doing anything more than a basic 1 colour scarf. I kind of threw myself into it and just hoped for the best and tried to learn from the mistakes I made. I found the pattern somewhere online, it was just a beginners socks pattern.





I'm now being a bit mad and attempting these http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/dalek-socks, first time using more than one colour and following a chart... rather scary!

I think you did well! I'm much too terrified to try sock knitting. The mere thought of trying to figure out what "turning a heel" means drains the colour from my face.

The colour is lovely. I'm sure your next pair will be great!

It looks great, and I really am sure it was maddening to attempt. I am thinking of giving sock making a try myself.
