View Full Version : FO a Pair of Socks

05-29-2008, 06:13 AM
Finished my first pair of socks yesterday using the May Sockamania pattern and Angle Yarn own hand dyed sock yarn.

I think I knitted a pair of socks when I was 14 or 15 about 28 years ago.

My cat Lightning is doing a quality check just to make sure my work was up to standard.



A very satisfying feeling to complete a pair of socks, so will have to start another pair straight away.

Beautiful socks! You did a nice job with the hand-dyeing. Cute kitty, too.

Thanks. I did not do the dyeing the yarn was bought already hand dyed. Do have some undyed trekking sock yarn that I will have to play with soon though.

Hi Karina

The socks are gorgeous I love the colours. I agree get another pair on OTN right away. I used to have a cat just like Lightening and his name was Toby he was a real babe xx

Those are beautiful...and Lightning is cracking me up :rofl: with the quality control - I'm glad I'm not the only one who goes through that with cats...mine drive me bananas getting into the yarn, bag, needles, accessories...and Heaven forbid you leave a row counter or anything out - instant cat toy...sigh. :teehee:

between my four cats and my 2 year old daughter I spend quite a bit of time crawling around on the floor trying to retrieve lost bits and pieces.

AWESOME!:cheering: What a great job you did!!!!!! It's so cool when you finish your very first!

Your picture reminds me of my first FO sock (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=57725&highlight=first+sock), I use my dogs in as many FO pics as I can and Peanut's very nosy, so he makes a great sock inspector. He's also an expert at socks since he's always stealing them!

It is very satisfying to complete a pair of socks. Can't wait till tomorrow when the new Sockamania pattern is published then I will know what sock is next if I am not doing the Sockamania sock I will start the Salto sock.

I just love all the pictures I see here of peoples project that features their pets. They are all so cute. My DH is having me on a tight leash or else we will end up living in a zoo. He seems to think 4 cats, two dogs and two rabbits is enough animals for one family.
