I finally made socks!
Seeing all the great socks on here inspired me to finally give them a try. It only took me 20+ years of knitting to get around to it.

Can't help feeling like I cheated or something though, since I still haven't 'turned a heel' or 'worked a gusset'. Maybe another time. I'll definitely use this pattern again since it was so easy!
http://www.knitpicks.com/Two+At+Once...D50417220.html from Knitpicks (two at once, toe-up,with an afterthought heel). Made with Bernat Sox yarn & 3.75mm needles. Not so thrilled with the way the colour blotched in areas, but they're really comfy anyways.
