These are photos of the first completed sock (click to be taken to full size image page):

I made a lot of progress in this project. I learned that I cannot do provisional cast-on where I pick up crochet bumps, but the pre-planning one with the needle included still does not work very well. I watched a video of a tutorial for doing short-row heels without wrapping the stitches and picking up wraps and I might do that next because the miters are really bulky with the k3tog method that Wendy Johnson’s generic toe-up feather-and-fan sock patternrav_link¬†¬†recommends.

(clickety to get large size)

I have some more of the ankle and the cuff to do, but this is a pretty good representation.

(These are from Wendy Johnson’s Generic Feather-and-Fan Toe-Up Socks, made with KnitPicks “Imagination” yarn in “Evil Stepmother”.)

And for my own use on the next sock, this is the provisional cast on tutorial.
