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

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?!

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

I think they look great. In the new knitting daily tv. Annie Modisett discusses how to get the socks to match. I've never used that yarn. is that in a hank or in a skein? if so, she said to count the strands so you have half and half and then cut. so you two balls to work each sock. then will then match exactly.

Does that make sense? When she was showing it, It made perfect sense but my summary could be gobblely gook. LOL
