I finished my first socks earlier this month!! Took a class at my LYS. I made some practice slipper socks last winter but couldn't find the time to do "real" ones. This class came up and 3 others from my S&B group decided to take it as well. We had a ball!! Even though I really didn't "need" to take the class, I did it for 3 reasons:

1. I figured I could always learn something - tricks and tips
2. I knew I'd have fun
3. Most importantly, it would force me to make the time to knit myself some socks!!

Here's my first pair of really socks! Made with Berroco Metallic yarn - size 1's:

OH so pretty !! I haven't bought any Mini Mochi yet, but I do love the colors. It doesn't stay on the shelf long at my LYS. She will get new colors in and that night at knit nite the ladies will be "fighting" over who gets how many of what color.

Have the same problem at my LYS. As soon as they get the Mini Mochi in, it's gone. I ended up ordering from Jimmy Beans Wool to get what I wanted.
