Sock It To Me!

My first sock!!!!!

I have finally finished my first ever hand-knitted sock!! Olivia was so happy to have it sized to her foot. Turning the heel was not as difficult as I thought it would be, and the whole process went rather quickly once I got a rythym going. This project heralded two firsts for me-this was the first time I used five needles, and they were made of bamboo, to boot.

A very cool, portable new hobby that will see me through the winter, I'm sure. The whole thing took me about two weeks from start to finish, and I'm sure my time will decrease since this first one was a learning process.

Now I just have to get the second one done, and she'll have a complete set.  
In stitches,
