Admire the sock!

Here is my beautiful Olympic sock. Yes, during the whole Olympics I could only manage to finish one sock. But it is a fine sock, and I am very proud of it. I haven't seen medal buttons for the crochet Olympics yet, but I would give myself a bronze. I finished 1/3 of the projects I had planned, but I worked really hard on the sock and learned a lot from it. Making the sock has really increased my crochet confidence. There will be no stopping me now!




I am super pleased the sock fits! And is wearable! I could wear it about just like a sock I bought from a store! The cuff is a little wonky, and when they aren't on you can see the heel is quite pointy (I think I over-decreased) but they fit and are clearly recognizable as socks, so I am pleased.

Wow, that is a great sock! I'll admit I was a bit dubious about a crocheted sock, but looks an actual sock. I should stop being a knitting snob ;)

That sock is H-O-T. I want one. Can I have Laurie socks for my birthday this year? You have many months to make them!

I love the sock. Thanks for coming over to my blog! After taking a look through your great stuff, I can't believe we haven't met yet. You knit, like primates and the Nields, and are an academic? Holy moly!

Oops, I meant to say crochet ;)

I think you should donate it to a legless veteran...

Nah, it's nice and good motivation to finish its mate.

That's pretty sweet...I want one!! And I'll take just one, that's okay...or perhaps you could do 4 tiny ones for Dante!!

Thanks for the sock admiration, all!

Okay, so my sock orders are two for Melinda and four for Dante. I should make Dante 4 tiny ones. That would be super cute!

Maybe I will take sock yarn to South America with me and return with many pairs of socks for all my friends!
