On the thrill of socks

I finished knitting my first sock ever on Thursday night.  Don’t believe me?  No?  Well then, what do you call this?

Told you…

Anywho, I was absolutely thrilled to have finished the sock.  So thrilled, in fact, that I roused Andrew from half-sleep to have a look at it when it was finished.  I have to admit that it was a bit hard to fall to sleep that night, being filled with excitement and visions of future sock knitting adventures.  I was even quite elated the next day…

I am definitely a big fan of sock knitting now.  It wasn’t nearly as difficult at I had envisioned and, to boot, hand knit socks feel so good on your feet.  Everyone should learn to knit their own socks!!  Although I do have to admit that a $30 pair of socks that you have to knit yourself is a bit excessive…  If you’re not already obsessed with fiber, that is.

I am, however, determined that this first sock of mine will not be single for long.  I’ve already gotten a start on it’s partner.  See?

Well, I’m off to knit some more socks.
