Goal # 10 DONE!

Today, I finished the third attempt at a comfortable sock with the yarn that I started using in my sock class! And because I now have a finished pair, I have a completed 2010 goal!

The third sock fits wonderfully! The first sock is still a little loose, but I have also tried it on a few times. I am hoping that a washing will take care of some of the loose stitches.

I have a book from the library that I read about on Mary's blog. It explains how to knit 2 socks at a time and how to knit on circular needles. The only problem is that I don't have 2 sets of circs in the size required for the next yarn that I am going to use so I will have to wait on trying this technique.

And here is the next yarn that I am going to use - Panda Soy in a pale purple. It's very soft! And I have already wound it into a ball!

I think it's great that you made a third sock. Now, when one goes missing in the laundry room, you already have one good to go!!! or, is for your extra foot that you haven't mentioned...... hmmm, maybe, I really don't want to know!!! ;-)

Great job! Congrats on completing your first pair of socks. The pale purple yarn looks yummy. Are you going to do a pattern with the new sock?

I LOVE those socks. Oh how I wish I could make some. Someday I'll learn to knit. They look heavenly!
