You've been grafted!!!

Here's my first Pretty Petals sock in all its glory!!! I couldn't wait to try it on, and it's extremely comfortable. The fit is really nice too, I call it "snuggy huggy", since it's quite snug, and it's hugging my foot so well. I'm also very pleased with how it turned out extending the pattern over the foot. It gives the sock that "little something extra".

Here is a close-up of the toe I "unvented". It still isn't an absolutely perfect fit, but it's purty durned close. Unlike my straight toed socks, this follows the natural shape of my toes more closely. You can click on the picture to see the toe in more detail. Now I get to cast on PP#2!!!

Looks like that toe really worked out! Well done! Very pretty sock, too.

What a lovely sock this is - I so love the pattern, and the color of the yarn you used is just perfect! Great job!

Thanks for the compliments! The toe *does* fit nice, although it can still use some work. This yarn *is* perfect since it told me that it wanted to be these socks, while still on the shelf at Rams!!! Usually it has to be in my stash for a while before it tells me what it wants to be
