So here’s the progress I’ve made so far on my first ever pair of socks. It’s slow going as I’m picking up and doing the odd rows here and there between other projects.
Here’s a closer view of the heel. That’s right I’ve finally been able to say “oh I turned the heel” it wasn’t as hard as I was anticipating to be honest so I think I will definitely get better with a bit of practice.
I’m absolutely loving this colourway it’s really lovely. Normally I steer clear of many blue things because I have 2 boys so it’s blue overload. This isn’t little boy blues though, it’s tropical oceans, dreamy sea holidays kind of blues so I’m totally in love of course.
This is the section I’m not happy with. You see the weird stitches were I’ve transitioned between the two needles? I’ve never had that before, and it only does it on this section too not the other two join’s so I must be holding something wrong somewhere. Still, thumbs up for sock making I absolutely love love love it! I’ve already got about a hundred sock patterns pinned in anticipation on pinterest and I’ve seen some amazing yarns I want to try. So watch this space!!
