On the Needles – July 10, 2015

Sock 071015I’ve gotten a bit farther on my sock, but I’m realizing now that It’s going to be too big. I was following a pattern and increased to the number it said I needed, and of course I think it’s too big by like 8 stitches on each side. I’ll finish it the size it is, but then I’ll need to decide what to do on the second one – make it the same size or decrease it to where it should be? I really like the striping and I’m sure the second one won’t turn out exactly the same, but I’m perfectly ok with that! I think it’s turning out pretty well for a first sock! I’m just about to the spot where I need to figure out how to do a heel, hopefully it’s not too hard! I’ve been working on this and hexie insanity at the same time, trading off when fingers are sore so I’m slowly making progress on both. Hopefully by next week (yeah I’m hopeful!) I’ll be working on or have the heel finished. We’ll see how much time I have this week!

Linking up to Patchwork Times – see what everyone else is up to!

    Congrats!! on knitting your first sock. I found that Youtube videos really helped me when I began knitting socks. I taught myself watching the videos. Your yarn is great! I love the stripes, too.

    You are doing a great job on your first sock, regardless of what size it becomes. I haven’t done toe up yet, but I love making socks. Your yarn is very pretty and is striping great.
