The Sock Experiment

Dscn0023

Well, here it is.  The first sock.  While I consider myself to be a fairly accomplished knitter,  I have totally avoided the entire sock genre.  I, to be blunt, have been terrified of "the sock".  I'm not sure if it's the teeny tiny needles or that heel turn thing, but sock patterns and I have steered clear of each other until now.  You can blame whoopsydaisy (the person I refer to as the sock lady) for inspiring me to be daring.  Well, dear sock lady, these socks I feel will fit a Clydesdale.  I can't imagine what I have done to create such gigantic socks, but trust me when I say that they are enormous.  And my shoe size?  A 10!
