Well, I have made some progress on my sock! I finally sat down with the instructions and read through them a million times along with reading some posts in the Ravelry group for the Fish Lips Kiss heel and it just finally clicked! Took me a few hours to get it all done, but I love how easy it was once I got it! I think I’ve got enough stitched that I’m going to start ribbing now, just have to decide if I want to do 1×1 or 2×2 ribbing. I’m thinking of going with the 2×2 but what does everyone else do? I still don’t like how big this sock is, but I’m not starting it over! I will just make the other one a little smaller – it’s my first pair and it’s a learning process! I posted last weeks update on instagram and Facebook and my mother calls me and says “You are knitting socks? You do know you can go to the store and buy them right?” I just laughed and told her it was something I always wanted to do! Hope to have more done by next week, maybe even starting the next one!
Linking up with Patchwork Times – check out what everyone else is up to!

Good work! I found those fishlips instructions daunting.
I really like a K3, P1 ribbing.
Your sock is looking good! I love your yarn. Youtube is a wonderful tool to help teach new techniques. That’s what I used to teach myself to knit socks. Have fun!
Your sock is beautiful, big or not. I have done k2, p2 for a couple tops. Haven’t tried the fish lips heel though. I’m partial to the ‘eye of the partridge’ heel and the regular one with the gusset.
