I finally managed to get one sock finished.
This was knitted in a rectangle that I tapered just a bit as I got to the toe at the bottom. You can see my seam running up the center.
I'm happy to report it does fit nicely. The yarn is a bulky one and it stretches easily to put the sock on.
It was scrap yarn so I added the pale stripe in the middle to make sure I had enough. And yes, I have Fred Flintstone feet, short and wide with no visible ankles.
The sock is soft & warm, just what I wanted. Next time I decide to try socks I will try the magic loop method of using a circular pair of needles and pulling the center into a loop when it gets tight. I'm just too OCD for double pointed needles.
The second sock is done from the top through the pale stripe, I only need to knit the bottom toe part. Maybe I can get it done before Spring arrives. Of course the last 2 days felt like Spring as it was 82 degrees.
