This is my first ever sock. It's not really a sock either. More like a tubey kind of sock:

I did try to make normal socks but got lost after the bit where you have to turn the heel thingo. But then I saw a pair of socks (which were bought) and said hey! that's pretty much a tube kind. no silly heel turning there!  Grin

Next to said socks:

That's when I wear it.

It's not that bad! Well I only wear woolly thick socks for sleeping. If I wear thick socks with sneakers, my sneakers become real tight.  Embarrassed

This is my first knitting of something other than a scarf. I'm starting the other side of this sock. Can't wait to have both pairs!

Comments, criticism, anything I don't mind!  Smiley

Good job!
I'm scared of knitting socks.

Yes, me too, I'm scared too. I've never done socks. I think it's great! The leap from scarves to socks, or even singular sock..., is large.

Socks are really satisfying. I know the heel looks hard, but it really isn't, it's really fun. Here's the pattern/step-by-step tutorial that I used to make my first pair: http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Intro.htm
Good luck!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

That's a great first sock.  I made tube socks for my very first pair, and yours are WAY better!

Knitting "normal" socks can be pretty intimidating, but once you struggle through the first one, the rest are pieces of cake.  I was scared to knit socks for awhile, and now they are my favorite thing to knit!

But.. the heel is the part of the sock that is the most fun to knit... especially short row heels. Do try the link, really, you're missing out!
