Halfway there!

I just finished my first of two Sidewinders, created for the Sockatility knit-a-long! This is definitely the best-fitting and most fun sock I've knitted yet.

I'm casting on for the second sock tonight, then taking it with me on a weekend trip to Atlanta. A seven-hour car ride each way definitely makes plenty of knitting time!

This was the first time I'd ever tried grafting. I thought it was going to be some scary, difficult thing only the pros could do, but it turned out to be ridiculously easy. Just keep chanting "In and off, Out and on"! I'm planning my own grafted sock pattern, look for it sometime after I finish these!

Great job with your Sidewinders! Did you end up knitting them on straight needles?

I just love your sidewinders! I love the colorway that you chose for it too! It just looks so great! I'll be trying the sidewinders out soon. Congrats on the grafting!
