Behold...SOCKS!!!

Behold my first pair of knitted socks…
Some of you may recall me struggling with understanding basic knitting concepts but… HA!!! (Thank you MakesbyMalin. :two_hearts:)

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!

Thank you!

Hint: the purl round is right under the cuff so it can “pass” as an aesthetic choice LOL

They turned out really great :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Good job!
Btw, did you figure out what the problem was? I’m curious, haha :blush:

Yeah >,<;;
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.

I picked it for the name and because it reminded me of a DND party member…I ended up gifting her the pair

That’s great! Nice work! I’ve been knitting over a decade and I still haven’t made the foray into sock knitting.
