Sock #1 is finished, a little big but it turned out pretty well for my first sock! Stoney is unimpressed. Yarn is Whimsical Woods Pixie Sock in "Cheshire Cat." #knittersoflitsy #catsoflitsy

Bookzombie Cute sock! 1w
rretzler 😻 I‘m halfway through my first sock and tired of the tiny little needles so I‘m taking a break from the sock with some blankets. Very nice sock! (edited) 1w
WhatWouldJaneDo @rretzler thanks! Small work like this definitely makes my hands get tired faster. Debating whether to start the mate or make a one skein cowl I just got supplies for next. 1w

Chrissyreadit It‘s pretty! Does it feel good? 1w
julesG @rretzler Knitting socks and then moving on to a project that requires larger needles always feels like knitting with tree trunks at the start. 1w
julesG Great achievement! Your first sock is looking good! 1w
rather_be_reading love it 😍 1w
rabbitprincess Awesome work! 😊 1w
rretzler @julesG 😂 I don‘t even mind the size 6s that I‘m using for a couple of other projects - the size 2s were driving me crazy because I had to pay too much attention! 1w
WhatWouldJaneDo @julesG right?! I've been using 1s for my socks and now I'm making a cowl on 6s and the gauge seems MASSIVE. 1w
WhatWouldJaneDo @Bookzombie @rather_be_reading @rabbitprincess thanks! @Chrissyreadit it feels pretty good, a bit looser around the heel than I was hoping but maybe if I wash them after I finish the second one they'll shape up a little. 1w

I was very tempted to buy all of these socks. But then I remembered my sock drawer is currently overflowing 🤷‍♀️

Knitting is the best way to lure Stoney onto my lap, and when Stoney is getting snuggles Polly has to get in on the action. #catsoflitsy

When the top of your sock is on a four round repeat and the sole is on a three round repeat... #knittersoflitsy

rather_be_reading what are those gadgets on your fingers? 2mo
julesG @rather_be_reading row counters, I'd guess. 2mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @julesG @rather_be_reading yep, the pink one is counting rows for the pattern on the top of the sock and the green one is counting my increase rows on the sole. 2mo

julesG I admire this. I hate knitting socks. I make one pair per year. It's my perfectionism that makes me hate socks. I want them to be identical and get frustrated. It's stupid, I know, but I can't help it. 2mo
WhatWouldJaneDo @julesG this is my first pair of socks (other than when, as a teenager when I was first starting to knit regularly, I started to make a pair out of some leftover boucle with no understanding of how yarn sizes worked and abandoned the project when it was obvious the "sock" was the size of a leg cast) but I figured if I can make gloves match up well enough it should be fine. It's still less stressful than matching up sleeves too! 2mo
julesG Wristwarmers, sleeves, gloves, mittens, socks - I suffer from second 'sock' syndrome. My first pair of socks was so stiff, wrong yarn on too small DPNs, they could have doubled as shoes. 2mo

I‘ve made socks for several people, multiple pairs for my daughter, but these are my first for myself! They‘re loose, but hopefully if I put them through the dryer they‘ll tighten up a bit. Not bad for making it up as I go!

hermyknee Those are so cute!!! ♥️ 3mo
RadicalReader Beautiful job 3mo
rretzler I started my first pair ever around Christmas, but stalled when I started making blankets for my 2 sons. The blankets have now turned into quite a project as I have “orders” for 3 more! 3mo

Shout-out to my mother-in-law for both the wonderfully cozy #socks and this drop-dead gorgeous book. Finally getting a jump on my Anne Bronte reading and could not be more psyched. #currentlyreading

LeahBergen Ahhh, you can‘t go wrong with Anne. ❤️ I recommend this book (if you haven‘t read it yet) 5mo
Andrea313 @LeahBergen That's the book that inspired me to take up Anne's writing! I'd read Charlotte and Emily, but Take Courage made me fall madly in love with Anne. ❤️❤️❤️ 5mo
sprainedbrain Love that book! ❤️ 5mo
