first finished sock

WOOHOOOOO! I finished a sock! :) Didn't take all that long, either--I just hadn't been working on it for a while. I'm not totally thrilled with it. The cuff is a little big, and the seam at the toe isn't great (I think maybe I made the sock just a little too long?). But my mom and my fiance think it's pretty, and some nice people on Flickr do, too. ;D

Guess I'll just have to make another one to match!

I don't think these will be the comfiest socks. I realized, in the course of trying these on, that Bernat Sox isn't the most comfortable to wear. I'll wear them anyway, of course. (Proudly!)

I have a TON of Bernat Sox yarn, so I'll use it and like it, dammit. Heheh.

Here's a pic of it on my foot:

Yay your first sock! It's so pretty!
It amazes me how easy it is to crochet socks. After my next crocheted pair, I'm going to try knitting a pair. (bites fingernails)

Very good job, hon. I don't recall, was that the In-Your-Shoes Ankle Sock from Crochet Me?
In the summary for the main SOS page I put a call-out to anyone who knows of some good cotton sock yarn with no wool in it for you. Someone out of the 506 participants must know of some!

I wonder after you wash them a few times if they will feel better?
