Behold my first pair of knitted socks…
Some of you may recall me struggling with understanding basic knitting concepts but… HA!!! (Thank you MakesbyMalin. )
Credit to crazy sock lady on youtube for the tutorial and the paid pattern off etsy. I uh…ignore the purled round lol…I didn’t know that stockinette is acquired by knitting in the round and not alternating like with straight needles…
I ended up leaving it like that for “aesthetic” reasons but I really just messed it up lol
I can’t tell what’s wrong with it. Looks good to me!
Hint: the purl round is right under the cuff so it can “pass” as an aesthetic choice LOL
I love the colors in that yarn! so cute
The color is ‘AWOOGA’ by The SheepyShire
Woohoo! Congrats! They look great!!
They looks amazing! I love the colors as well
I love the colors! What yarn did you use? It’s so pretty
They turned out really great Good job!
Btw, did you figure out what the problem was? I’m curious, haha
It turns out that instead of slip, knit for a row and purling across the next row for the heel flap I was doing a slip on the purl row too (as well as the slip, knit rows)…it made it too chunky and squished together.
Another issue was that I was pulling the needles too far apart. The “line” that develops in the slip stitch ended up being too long and loose. I had to look at several hours of videos to figure out what my mistake was…there wasn’t much to go on for this specific problem I had.
The color is ‘AWOOGA’ by The SheepyShire!
I picked it for the name and because it reminded me of a DND party member…I ended up gifting her the pair
Ah, ok! Thanks It’s great that you figured it all out in the end and got such a great result
That’s great! Nice work! I’ve been knitting over a decade and I still haven’t made the foray into sock knitting.
