FO: My Socks
I finally made a pair of socks for me! I followed Silver's Sock class again for these...I am so happy to have them done, it's been so cold here and my feet have been freezing! Definitely gonna wear them tonight

I used Sockina Cotton again, I just love that yarn!

ETA: The socks obviously didn't end up matching quite exact, I thought I started the second sock the same as the first, but, it didn't turn out that way...lol...ah well, they're for me for around the house so no biggie.

Holy cow!!! Though I've been knitting for a few years now, this is THE first time I have ever worn a pair of hand-knit socks and I must say, I don't think I ever want to wear store bought socks again! They're so soft and warm, yet airy and have such a smooth texture! Now to learn the 2 socks at a time method so I can start whippin' 'em out like mad...lol

Great Job! Love the yarn & also your color choice.
I don't think I have ever heard of 'sockina' sock yarn. Is that the name of the company that makes the yarn? Where could I find some? I think I could squeeze one more sock yarn into my sock stash

The manufacturer is Schoeller Stahl. The only place online I've seen that carries a variety of the Sockina at a decent price is ebay...This HERE is the yarn I used for my socks, however, my LYS carries Sockina so that's where I get mine from. My LYS carries if for around $12.95, I believe, and it's on ebay for $1.00 more. The other online stores I've seen carry it for anywhere between $15.95-$19.95. I think it's definitely worthy of making its way into anyone's stash! Oh, and the yarn is a cotton, nylon, acrylic blend.

They look great! I am sure when I finally try self patterning yarn I will not get them the same either! That just shows they're one of a kind! (I mean *two* of a kind! LOL!)

The first time I wore a pair of handmade socks, I felt the sameway they can't be beat, right?!
