Well, here it is. My first sock ever.
Knitting it was so much fun, I couldn't resist trying it on all the time.
There is only one problem....this sock is waaaay to big for me. I have a shoe size 40/41 (size 7.5/8 in the USA), but my feet are very slim. The pattern I used stated to cast on 64 stitches for my size, but since my feet are slimmer than normal feet I cast on 60 stitches. Still the sock turned out way too wide, my gauge was a little bit bigger so I might have to use smaller needles.
Anyone else ever made socks that were too big?
I think I will let this project rest until I know what to do. Make a new pair or finish another sock this side and donate them to my boyfriend (he is not a big fan of purple though ;-)).
You might have already seen the baby booties that I finished and I also started another project on the list. A little sneak peek:
