I finished my first sock!
It’s been a crazy, crazy week but luckily socks can be knit on the bus… and photographed on the shoreway while Matt drives us to work:
So I have a few questions for all you sock knitters out there….
Do handknit socks always make legs look this… stumpy?
‘cause I swear my calves aren’t that freakishly large!
How do you know how much yarn you’re going to have? Because I wanted to make these as tall as possible so I kindof just guessed at when to start the heel… but I ended up with quite a bit of yarn leftover. So is there a foolproof way to figure that out? And what do you do with all of the bits of leftover sock yarn?
And does this toe look extra-wonky or do they always look kindof like that?
Oh and I already cast on for the second sock so as to ward off second sock syndrome....we’ll see how that goes…
