Here it is, my first sock! I like how it looks, I like how it fits, I like how it matches my jeans. However, I don't think I'll be able to wear it. It feels like I'm walking on mesh and it's going to bug my diabetic-sensitive foot. Oh well, it can be my learning sock. I'm going to try again with a new yarn, a tighter gauge, and do reverse stockinette on the sole so it's smoother.

Hi Susan...congratulations on your first sock! I see you used the magic loop method. I made a pair of baby socks that way, now I am doing a class on the DPN socks. My husband is diabetic, so if I ever make him a pair of socks (size 13 shoe, BTW) I will keep the reverse-stockinette in mind! Hey, I actually pulled out my FLAK and did a row the other day! How's yours?
