Not done with the second but was too excited, I wanted to show off lol :]
And show off this fantastic yarn!

My very first pair of socks! I can see why theyre so addicting and why the lone sock syndrome occurs so much. They are great but it does seem like alot of energy goes into them so Ive already cast on the second pair to stave off the want to just leave it alone. I fear if I dont completely finish the pair Ill never want to finish the second sock of any pair ever.

There is something about the sock that my puppy loves. I couldnt take a picture for the longest time because he kept licking my feet.

Sock yarn is Millefiore colorway of Kalypso sock yarn from pigeonroofstudios on Etsy

My puppy matches the carpet :3

Love the sock and the colors, but your puppy is ADORABLE!

Crocheting is like prostitution.  First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.  Maybe that is why they call us Hookers?

It probably took me 6 hours? At least. The book I was using was kind of unclear in some aspects so I had to reference some other sources. Like why do I have 20 stitches left at the end for the heel turn and why am I not going to work them yet? And the heel turn is kind of a pattern in itself but she didn't say that so I was confused.

Thanks everkutz, he's kind of trouble maker though. He's definitely a Cocker always searching for light fluffy things to tear apart. He once took kleenex one by one and shredded them on our couch until he emptied the box.
He also has a weird fasination with our cat's automatic kitty litter lol

Looks great! I haven't gotten brave enough to try socks yet, but they do look addicting. Adorable pup too Smiley

Swaps welcomed! I have 15 rose balls up for grabs/trade.

You should definitely try them! I thought they were going to be waaaay worse than they actually were. I think I was a little apprehensive of the gusset and it was way simple. Just gotta have a good teacher or pattern.

It was only difficult for me because my book wasn't clear at times but other than that, it was really easy knitting. Just long since I have relatively big feet and was knitting with fingering weight sock yarn and size 2 US needles.

I definitely need to work on my kitchener stitching though lol.

I can't find the book for some reason but I believe it's called Getting Started: Knitting Socks by Ann Bud

Not that I'm a knitter, but I can totally appreciate second sock syndrome. Because hell, if it's something a bit fiddly I get second earring syndrome, and a sock takes WAY longer than that! [grin]

When she was good, she was very very good - but when she was bad she was fabulous.
