Just Like Karate Kid

Since these socks have already been posted about as a WIP and they are not totally done I can't post them as an FO, but I am so proud that I finished one sock that I just had to post about it. I know I can do some fancy schmancy magic loop knit 2 at a time thing, but I don't know how so for now I'm just doing one at a time.
At the end of knitting a sock from the top down you have to close up your sock and the best way I think to do that is kitchner stitch. If you're not acquainted with kitchner then a good place to learn how is here. She says to chant knit, purl, purl, knit which is a good idea to keep yourself on track. I take a tip from Daniel Son and chant knit off, purl on, purl off, knit on. check out the link and you'll see why. Now on to the next sock!
Happy knitting!
