This is a ‘ta da’ moment in my life, I have wanted to learn to knit socks for ages but decided to bite the bullet as I’m taking part in ’52Things’ with the Craft Pimp Team.
I found a fee sock pattern calculator here
My sock isn’t perfect, there were a couple of dropped stitches that I had to mend, the welt is a bit slack but my Grandpa used to like handknit socks and he’d always say don’t cast on too tight, so that stuck in my head. I struggled wrapping the heel turns but I’ve now found and excellent video.
The toe shaping isn’t perfect but I found out on a forum that 2K2 is the same as Sl 1 K1 pass sl st over.
But THE most important thing is, IT FITS!
Well I suppose I will just have to see how it turns out, hopefully they will be the same size 🙂
