One Sock Down!

Tada!!! Such as it is -- it's finished. I just learned how to do a kitchener stitch. That's the stitch you use when you need to knit up a seam, seamlessly :) In this case, I wanted a nice smooth toe.
Basically, you must have equal numbers of stitches on 2 needles, keep them parallel, and do a really fancy back-and-forth stitching, using a tapestry needle (or other large needle). I had to get online help from a youtube video.
In this photo, perhaps you can see that I've already finished off over half of the toe, on the right, and have only 3 stitches remaining to "kitchener."
So here's the sock. Mother likes it a lot. It's not a sock for wearing in a pair of shoes; it's too bulky for that. I wanted a pair of footie socks, for wearing around the house. They fit well and are comfortable.

Time to get started on the second one ....


  1. Bravo, MK! It looks GREAT! I'm so proud of you. You're speedy, too!


Hello! I hope you leave a word ~ I will get back to it as soon as I can!
