Yeah For Me!

My first pair of knitted socks!!

Pattern: It is the Knitmore Vanilla Sock 

Yarn: Online Supersocke 100, colorway: Florida

Loved using this yarn!  I still have almost 1/2 a skein left…We’ll see how they hold up…

Now to finish the Jaywalkers…I closed the toe on the first one, but have not cast on the second yet…The cast-on of 76 stitches is really too big for me…the first sock is too large, but I don’t know enough yet to change that number…so does anyone have any ideas how to make the first sock fit a bit better in the cuff?

Yay for first socks! I hope they bring you much joy (mine make me happy every time I put them on) ;)

Usually I'd say go down a needle size to make things fit better. But, because you've already done the first one, I'd either make the second one the same way or rip out the first one and go down a needle size. Personally, I'm leaning toward making the second one and giving them to someone that's knitworthy and making a pair for yourself later :)

DADGUMIT, WOMAN! Those look marvelous -- it's hard to believe they're your first socks, and you're a new knitter. Man. Congratulations!
