I was going to entitle this as "Wordless Wednesday WIP" like other knit bloggers...but who are we kidding! I like to talk! LOL!! :oD
If you all recall I am a virgin at this whole Magic Loopin' thing AND doing my 1st pair of adult socks.
After reading the pattern 3,423 times to translate it into what I need to do for ML, and reading my Magic Loop book 176 times. I finally got it! :oD
I even remembered to knit in the back of the stitches connecting the instep so I won't have any "gaps" per the "you just pick up those knit tricks along the way from other knitters" wisdom :op Or you can just Click Here
I will say it again how I am so glad that I did baby booties first to give me some clue on how to knit socks! Or I would have been so s.t.u.c.k.
Can you see my 5,438 notes on my pattern?! LOL
I do like the fact that the variegation of the yarn hides a multitude of sins and that the Sockotta is a great first time knitting sock yarn.
However, in trying the WIP sock on I wish the sock fitted a little bit more snugger than they do right now (I should have made the size for 5/6 even though I am a 7.5 size), but all in all that is not quenching my excitement of doing my 1st pair of socks!
And might I also add that placemarkers are your best friend! LOL (Y'all see my safety pins...yeah they really didn't help - I ended up eyeballing when I should make my instep decreases! Haha) I sure will be using PMs on the 2nd sock. :op
So as of now it is all about the foot - pure stockinette! This is a very simple/nothing fancy pattern (which was the whole point of this exercise boys and girls!) so it is home free from here!
I gotta give myself a pat on the back thus far! WHOA!
