At last - a photo of my first ever completed pair of socks. After the ones on dpns, where I only made one sock, and the ones on straight needles, where I only sewed up one sock and ran out of wool for the second, it's nice to be able to say "I've made a pair of socks!" Hooray for the magic loop method.

Kitchener Stitch:

Pulling in all threads:

The lovely Eye of Partridge Stitch!:

As you can see, there was some slight trouble with laddering (strange, since I normally knit so tightly) and the decreasing for the toe looks rather obvious. The toe with the Kitchener stitch also looks funny in the photograph, but it's also partly because I did on my own, without watching the how-to video.


  1. YEAH you! You finished! I am so proud of you. The colors are lovely! And I do adore the Eye of partridge. Once you make one that way, you'll never go back.

    So do you think you want to make more socks?

  2. Well, now that I've started the kilt hose... it's getting easier each time!
