Doing the happy dance on one foot!

And those who know me, know what an accident in the making THAT would be. LOL
But check out that heel flap people. LOL Now with everything there is a learning curve. I know the next pair to make the size down. AND no long cuff. It looks loose at the heel from all the ons/offs it has had. I think when it isn't all stretched from the turning in and out from sewing seems closed and finishing off ends, and washed, it will be snuggly. This yarn has more stretch in it that I thought it would. I like how it looks and they are very soft. So...smaller size and shorter cuff on next pair. But I am very happy with my first one. I honestly didn't think I could do it. Now I have to lay the yarn aside until I get my tatting homework done. I just couldn't quit until I had the first sock completed. Lots of notations on my pattern too. It looks like I am studying for a test! LOL Cannot wait to get the second one completed though. I know it will go much faster now also. I was second guessing myself on this one alot. And recounting stitches a billion times over.
I called my mom and told her I was a rock star. That had her laughing alot :o)

She is torturing me with all these nice socks she has made (when I have no clue how to make any). I'm thinking she should have a sock giveaway sometime...dont' you agree, Tonya? LOL

Man, if that was me, I'd have to make the second one IMMEDIATELY!! Otherwise, I would forget and the size would probably be off! Guess that's what all the notes are for huh? :o)
