I don't often brag...but this is just too exciting to let slip by without saying something. I have successfully (mostly) knitted a sock.
This is part of the reason I took up knitting in the first place. My first attempt was a few months ago and I gave up in the middle of it, but this time I persevered and, after the heel turning, most of it was smooth sailing. Yes, the toe is messed up and I had to consult my Knitting for Dummies to figure out how to correctly kitchener stitch. But, I think I've got it now.
By the way, yes, the sock is two different shades of blue. I ran out of one color when I was mostly done and ran to the store and grabbed what they had just so I could finish.
