View Full Version : FO-Marlene My first socks!!

01-28-2009, 01:24 AM
So my knitting new years resolution was to finally knit a pair of socks. So I bought some lovely sock yarn Wollmeise, then chose the pattern. I chose Marlene from winter 2008 Knit 1. I may have gone a little over my head as I tried magic loop and I didn't look at any of the videos or tutorials. I just jumped right in.

I did make some mistakes with my first sock. I should have used markers as my heel was a little off and my toe shaping was a little off. Second sock learned my lesson. I left my mistakes in as they are on my feet and no one will see it anyways. LOL.

These socks were very difficult to photograph to capture the color correctly. It is a red and purple colorway. Very very rich in saturation.

Those look like difficult first socks. You are very brave to tackle ML and a pattern stitch on your first socks. They look beautiful. Love the yarn.
