Tiny knitting = tiny sock
I knitted my first sock! Granted it's only about 2 inches tall but it IS a sock. This pattern and sock blocker keychain kit were too cute to pass up. It was a quick, fun project and although I misread the pattern in one spot, it's a keychain so who cares? Looks passable to me. :)
There's something pretty funny about knitting such a tiny object. My fingers felt huge!
I used size 00 needles and magic looped. I had a 40" cable (the greatly flexible ones from Knitpicks) and was able to switch between having my stitches in 2 sections and 3 which was useful for creating the heel. Raveled here.
