my first real sock :)


done in regia ...... photographed with the new camera: not bad for £11.99(the camera, not the sock!)

the idea is that I'll have a try with it and then if I get bitten by the photographic bug I can consider something more fancy schmancy...but this will do me fine for now. Just doing it is an achievement.

I knitted a pair of fingerless mitts for my friend in Canada......alas before I got the camera: it would have been nice to be a show off

doing this has cheered me up and helped me keep going with little bits and pieces - blogging has effects I had not realised. It really doesn't matter if no-one else ever reads this......it's for me......

Beautiful sock! I have just started knitting socks myself and am enjoying the quick results and usefulness of the project.

It's a beautiful first sock!!! I love the colors. The camera takes great pictures. It's fun blogging and you'll be suprised and pleased by the number of visitors you'll get. Happy blogging!

Congratulations on the blog. I also love this sock for colour. I do so enjoy colours.

Welcome to Blogland! Love the colours in your sock.

Great start, both sock and blog. Nothing wrong with that camera, and your white background is inspired. If you fancy tweaking the colours a bit, there are several free photo editing things out there, including Picasa, that you might want to play with.

I think it's a lovely sock--really nice colors--and you're doing well with the blog too!

Wow! That's a fine looking sock. Now you need to get yourself signed up with Ravelry.com if you're not already. There is a waiting list but you'll move to the top quickly. It's free and kinda is like Facebook for knitting. That way you can show off your socks to thousands as well as see what everyone else is knitting.

Congrats on your first "real" sock!!! Does that mean there were some that were not real? Teehee!

Hope you have a good day,
