My first sock..

Well, what can I say.? Four months ago I started learning how to crochet. I thought it would be a fun challenge and a nice way to start the year. I thought I would practise a few samples, maybe make a few squares, put my practice to good use by crocheting some jewellery... I'm starting to fear that my new hobby is turning into a serious addiction. I'm amazed at how versatile this craft is and just how many different things you can do.
My Gran and the Great Aunties had masses of crocheted doileys and chair backs around when I was a wee girl and I always thought of crochet as a bit of a grannies craft. How wrong I was !!!
Anyway, I have spent long enough away from my crochet hook and I feel the force calling me back. Here's a wee look at my first sock.
So far so good. My only concern is will I be able to make the other one the same size !!
