My first sock.. finished in March

I was so excited about my first sock, I had to photograph it with whatever was at hand — in this case, my cell phone:

It's Rick's Sock from The AntiCraft (excellent site), done in Patons Classic Wool merino. I did make two, though I muddled the gusset a bit so one is a little longer than the other. Fortunately, so is one of my feet.

After hand-washing, it felted a bit, blurring the stitches. But they are very cozy. They even fit inside some of my shoes! (Mostly I use them as slipper-socks, though.)

Here, Laila demonstrates that she is quite interested in knitting issues:
