day 22 : socks!

My first knitted socks! I had so much fun with these, and it's not difficult at all. I have no idea what took me so long to try it. I already went and bought more sock yarn (I'm thinking about Christmas gifts! Hand knit socks would be the perfect gift, don't you think?).

The heel wasn't scary for me, because I've done the same sort of thing when I made those felted baby balls. The toe needed to be grafted, which I had no clue how to do but I did a quick search on You Tube and found this video. At about 5 minutes in she walks you through grafting the toe.

I used Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Yarn in HS08 Marino and this sock "recipe." I wear size 9 shoes and they are a bit too small for me, so if you have big feet like me you might want to make them a little longer. :)

They look great! Took me a few attempts to get the hang of grafting too but it looks so neat it's worth the effort.

Love your banner btw, I covet that little red suitcase :)

Thanks guys! I know people have been knitting socks for ages but I still can't believe how easy it was. And I thought they would be all big and bulky but they're not, they're like REAL socks! The novelty of it is still very strong. :)
