I loom-knit a sock! It's late so this will be a shorty* but I want to gather my thoughts before bed. I used the Weekend Socks pattern from Isela Phelp's Loom Knitting Primer book.
Loom-y magic shines in those wrap-and-turn short rows. I don't know how it all stays connected but it works awesome. First moment of glee: "Look! It's a heel! Woo!"
It wasn't always 100% woo-hoo though.
Issue 1: My cables don't match from the leg to the foot. They jag when they should be straight. At least I think so.
Issue 2: I'm not sure if I did the kitchener stitch in the toe area correctly. Halfway through I had one more stitch on the top needle than the bottom. Eek! So I just tried to work it in because I had no clue how to work backwards to fix it. Also, the whole seam made a ridge when I thought it would be flat.
Issue 3: The foot part might be a couple rows too long. I can scrunch it up and then it fits. But I have yet to see how it stands up to the walk-around-a-bunch test.
So yeah, it's not a perfect sock. But you know the funny thing about socks? You get a second chance to make it all right!
When I tried it on ... second moment of glee: "SOCK!" (as I stick my foot in the air)
* I don't think I can write a shorty.
