my first sock!

I finished my very first sock!  I used the first pattern in this book, and Opal brand yarn (Masken Ball — the label is in German so I’m not sure what the actual color is called… I just got this yarn in England because it was gorgeous).  It fits and everything!  I left the white and dark green yarns woven in the stitches because those are my stitch markers, and I’m going to use them as guides when making the second, matching sock.  Hopefully they’ll be exactly the same!  I was just so excited about this that I couldn’t wait until both were finished to post it — I’ve been dying to finish a sock for ages!  Turns out this one only took about 3 evenings of work — I’ve been crocheting while my boyfriend and I watch the TV series “Highlander.”  It’s very good.
