This was my first attempt at knitting socks, so when the pattern said to knit “until you have reached your desired length” I didn’t realise that what it actually meant was to knit as far as the point where your toes meet your foot, rather than all the way to the tips of your toes. As a result my first sock ended up being a bit too long on the foot.
Aside from my misunderstanding above this was a good first sock pattern. The instructions were clear and relatively straightforward.
The yarn I choose was lovely to knit with, unfortunately despite my caution in washing it, it has felted up something fierce.
