One Sock. Done



This weekend I finished all my Christmas projects! Today's big job is getting everything wrapped and taken to the UPS for shipping, then I can relax and enjoy everything. As you can see above, I've also finished (but not blocked) the first of the First Ever Top Down Socks by Melanie. This pattern is called the Child's French Sock, which is apparently what the original sock pattern from the late 1800's was called. I keep seeing dragon scales, and the more I look at it, the more I see an albino dragon, so in my mind, these socks have become Snow Dragon Socks. Maybe the Snow Dragon ate the French child, I don't know, but I'm really happy with the way this sock looks. Since I don't Kitchener stitch, I cheated on the toe. I'll be sure to get pictures of how I do the second toe since I can't be the only one who doesn't do Kitchener stitch. I'm off to pack up Christmas gifts. Happy Monday!

I love the socks, I also have been wanting to make more white socks as well as this particular sock, just never thought of it together. You have me sold. Can't wait to see how you did your toes.....

I HATE kitchener stitch. I need need need to know how to avoid it!!!

Every time I start trying it (again) I end up faking it and doing my own thing, which ends up lumpy and aweful.

Can you help!?
