One Down……

Yep, sock number 1 is completed πŸ˜€Β  I am so pleased with how it’s turned out, and now hoping the second one turns out just as well, so that I don’t end up with mis-matched tootsies πŸ™‚

But also, of course, because I am going to be creating the tutorial with the second one. I adapted the toe from the instructions that came with the loom, because I didn’t fancy the idea ofΒ  a ‘pointy bit’, which is how it seems it would have turned out from the instructions (there was no picture) but the adaptation worked just fine, so that’s how my socks will be done from now one.

So – here is the finished item – looking jazzy on my big fat foot LOL

When they are both done, I will add some liquid rubber stuff to the bottom to turn them into non-slip slipper socks πŸ˜€

So pleased with this :D

So pleased with this πŸ˜€

A perfect fit :D

    I’ll keep fingers crossed and lets all pray to the old gods that sock 2 matches sock 1.
    Just curious, Is the top half of sock meant to look different to foot part ?

    That is awesome! I love the colours! I suppose that can be the problem with making pairs of things they have to be identical or as near as! What a great idea using liquid rubber I have never heard of being able to buy it but I guess someone has to sell it to the manufacturers I would have never thought of that xx

      Thank you πŸ™‚ This next sock I will keep a record of rows etc.
      Once they are all done, I will post a link to the stuff I have, it’s specially for adding grip to socks. I found it when I made those first socks for my mum. It wasn’t cheap but it’s worth it to prevent an accident. God knows it’s easy enough to fall over as it is lol

    That is really good. It is much quicker than working on 5 needles. I am back finishing off my mother’s socks, as i had to order more wool, as in my brain dead head i managed to throw away that scrappy bit of the end of the ball which would have been just enough to finish the white bit off – grr. Yes the problem with socks is that you have to knit two πŸ™‚

    It looks amazing! How easy is the sock loom to use? I might have to get one and give it a try ☺️

      It’s a lot easier than knitting in some ways πŸ™‚ Ebay have unbranded ones for a couple of quid from China or 6.99 from a UK seller. They look to be identical but obviously the one from China (which is also free postage) will take 2-4 wks to get here. But by then my tutorial will be all sorted πŸ˜€

      I am about 3/4 of the way through it. Although I think I have done something different with this sock to the one pictured, and I won’t know until I am finished, and I might have to make a third so I can finish the tutorial and get it right 😦 I am very annoyed with myself, I can tell you.
      How many pegs has the loom you have ordered got? It would be good to know so I can adjust the tutorial if needed xx

        I will have to wait until I have it, but I believe it is adjustable. I will look it up and let you know. And don’t be so hard on yourself. You did an amazing job on the first sock – and tutorials can always be revised. I know that it will be a great help for me when I start. πŸ™‚

          Oooh, those adjustable ones are slightly different. I got one for my birthday last month, and the pegs allow for a much finer gauge. The principle is still the same tho, but you might have to do one as a ‘test sock’ to see how it comes out size-wise.

            I couldn’t find one like yours or I would have gotten that. But do your tutorial your way – I make my own crochet patterns and adapt recipes so I should be able to make it work.
