Fun Sock 01 Finished!

One down, one to go. I've finished the first Meilenweit Fun Sock and cast on for the second.

Meilenweit Fun Sock 01

I haven't blocked it yet, but you can get an idea of what it looks like. I'm not super excited about the striping that happened near the toe, but I can live with it. I also noticed little holes where I picked up the stiches along the heel after turning it and I couldn't figure out why that was happening. Thanks to Spinnity's help, I learned that even though the pattern says "pick up x stitches along the heel..." that I should have picked up and knit the stitches.

I didn't have my tape measure when I was doing the foot of the sock, so I made it a little too long. Luckily my sister has slightly larger feet then I, so she'll get the socks!

Congrats on the sock! It looks good. What is picking up vs. picking up and knitting?

Yay, Christina! One down, one to go. I actually sort of like the striping near the toe. Adds visual interest.

That's so strange. I didn't get an email (like I usually do) when C posted her comment. Anyhow, Spinnity posted the answer on her blog. Check it out there if you're interested.

(Thanks Spinnity!)

Very nice! Someday I will get up the nerve to try socks. Someday.
