So I finished my first sock over the weekend.
I learned a few things while doing so, though. The first is that I have a VERY short heel and that the pattern, as written, makes the heel WAY too long.
The second is that I really really well and truly love the Russian grafting method even if it makes a visible seam. It's just tight and nice and quick and easy. I just have to make sure I use a large enough hook or it's irritating.
The third is that I really really want to make a THIRD sock so that I have a pair of socks in this yarn that are exactly as I want them to be. Because while I finished this, the too-long-heel makes it fit a little funny on the bottom and I want to be able to wear these. According to my friend, I should be able to manage a third sock since I made mine nice and short.
But I finished a sock! And it only took me a week! And I really really enjoyed it!
More as I work on the second sock to come... Also! Some spinning! Later in the week, though.
