I finally did it!!

When I started knitting, my dream was one day to be able to knit socks! I saw them as something really difficult and hard to make. Last weekend I decided to start knitting a pair. I looked for the easiest pattern for beginners, I copied it, I bought some cheap yarn and I started to knit. At first it was really hard for me to take control of the four needles, hahaha, and then after a couple of rows I was all excited. Knitting the heel was easier than I was expecting it came along really well. I think that the hardest part was closing the sock, because I wanted to use the Kitchener Stitch, oh gosh that was hard! I had to go to you tube and find a tutorial to understand it, and guess what?? I did it!!!
My first sock looks beautiful! I was so proud of myself that I put my first sock on my nightstand when I went to bed so I could look at it! hahaha. I haven’t taken any pictures yet, but I will soon, when I finish the second one. I think that is going to happen between today and tomorrow!
I remember that Stephanie once told me that knitting socks is addictive, and I have to say that she was totally right!
How was your first knitting socks experience???
