Huzzah! A Sock!

Hi Guys :)
Remember my crocheted toe sock?
Well...here it is!

It isn't the prettiest looking sock, but as i used DK yarn it is super cozy and warm! 

I've had to sew up a few places where i've dropped stitches, and i can see a few in the photo above that i have missed,  but never mind.
I have to say, once i got started , it was pretty fast to work up, the heel was quite scary as i had never done one before, but it turned out to be pretty easy, i didn't work to a pattern, i  just halved the rows and worked back and forth, slipping a stitch at the start of each row.

In hindsight, i wish i had decreased a few more stitches on the cuff, as it is quite baggy, and added a few extra rows, but i can easily rip it out and add them, so it isn't the be-all and end-all.
I've already started the toe of the next sock and threaded it onto the needles, i did it as soon as i had finished, this way i don't get second sock syndrome haha :)

In garden news, i have planted out the leeks, the poor things won't know what has hit them, it has suddenly turned so windy! We live in a very hilly area, and we are practically on top of one of the hills, so there is very little protection from the wind. I wonder if i can figure something out that will block the wind a little? hmm.. must add it to my to-do list.

What are you up to this week?
