It's not perfect, the foot is a bit smaller than the top, but I shall love these socks with all my heart!

Also, perfect stashbusting project Tongue

This was the first time I've knitted using double pointed needles (size 3.50mm) and it took me the first two stripes to get into it, so I look foward to doing another pair, now that I think I've figured it out!

those are cool! I've tried knitting socks, but the dpn are killer - I get ladders in the corners and can't figure out how to make it work - I'm so impressed by your first sock, makes me want to try again, almost. Almost. Grats on sock one! Grin

Twos: Welcome to the Wonderful World of Sock Knitting! It feels pretty good to complete that first sock doesn't it?

those are cool! I've tried knitting socks, but the dpn are killer - I get ladders in the corners and can't figure out how to make it work - I'm so impressed by your first sock, makes me want to try again, almost. Almost. Grats on sock one! Grin

Myrdda: I had the same problem using dpns and getting ladders and no amount of knitting looser or tighter made any difference.  I had to constantly move my "start of round" and it got annoying because sometimes my stitch marker would fall off my needle and I wouldn't notice and would lose where that spot was!  My personal fav for knitting socks is the two circular method although there are several other methods as well: magic loop, modified magic loop, two circulars, and even 9" circular needles made especially for sock knitting! Knittinghelp.com has some great video tutorials, you should check it out!  Give them all a try to find out which way you like best!  Smiley
