1st sock – Garter Stitch Rib in blue Opal Sugar Almond Magic

Pattern: Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks
2.5mm addi turbos

The first sock fits really well after a little bit of adjustment. I followed the pattern only to find that my toes were a bit too snug, so tinked back & added an extra 3 rows in by increasing the two row decreases in the toe. This was done at Knitting Group on Friday – I wonder how many other people have taken their shoe & sock off in a cafe to try a newly completed hand knitted sock on? The staff didn’t notice or if they did nobody complained Once I had got the fit right I could do the Kitchener Stitch which wasn’t easy in such a lively atmosphere!
