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. :)

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?).
