just finished a pair of socks for my dear granddaughter's 9th birthday present. Purple & green at her request. Got a nice bloom on the yarn when I washed them for the first time. Here they are blocking - literally. :teehee:

I like how they match - but don't. I think a nine-year-old would get a kick out of that!

I'm just a weensy bit glad you're not, D

I'd be afraid for YOU to examine MY knitting up close... YIKES!

But, you see...I've never knit a single sock, ever! What do I know? :eyes:

You are inspiring!

not Noro - something I picked up at my LYS. Sorry, don't remember what it was. If I can still find a label around here, I'll edit back in and let you know. Thank you for the compliments, everyone. My ego needed a good stroking.

Consider your ego stroked again. They are wonderful looking socks, and you should be very proud of yourself!

If you could find the label, I'd love to know what yarn it is, as I love those colors also.
