First Ever Knitting Class!

So I’ve been knitting off and on for 30 years or so (my mom taught me how to knit when I was in 2nd grade) but I have never taken a knitting class until today.  I start my first of 3 Toe Up Sock classes and what a fun time!  There are only 2 of us in the class so it’s very laid back and I’m having a ball!  We learned a Figure 8 cast on and the Magic Loop method for toe up socks.  I’m using a 100"% Superwash Merino Wool sock yarn and 32” long #2 circular needles.  Here’s some progress pictures…

We learn how to shape the heel in the next class so i have to knit to the heel this week.

Your sock is looking great! Socks are about all I like to knit these days. I have never done them from the toe up.

Your toe looks great. I can't believe you got all of that done in one class. The yarn you're using is really cute too!

It looks great!! Welcome to the Sox Pox community!!

I'm going to have to make a few more pairs of top down before I attempt the toe up, but I can't wait!
