Lovely socks! Now get that hose off before it strangle-ates you! (That's my feelings about hose at any rate!)

Thanks for all your kind words
These socks were donated to a fund-raiser this morning. It was a silent auction and it raised $27 . I'm very happy about it because it's a very good cause. Another reason why I was wearing hose when I model it. I didn't want to get them dirty after I washed them.
Anyway, I still have some yarn left so I'm going to knit a pair of child socks (I hope I have enough). I'll post pic when done.
Once again, I really appreciate your encouragements and enjoy your friendships.

That's great! It's nice to know someone appreciates handmade knitted socks.
If you're not sure you have enough yarn, do you have something that would coordinate and make the heels and toes a different color? If you're doing toe-up, you can make the cuff whatever length you have enough yarn for. This might be a good reason for an afterthought heel, you can decide later if you want a different yarn for the heel.

So glad your socks brought in some money for the fundraiser. People bidding on and paying for your hard work like that makes it all worthwhile, doesn't it?

Those are absolutely beautiful - I am in awe!!! My oldest son is a sock junkie and I'd love to knit him a pair or two but everytime I think about attempting it I chicken out. Is it really as difficult as it looks?

Congratulations on getting through the ripping out and restarts - I admire your tenacity

One of knittings best-kept secrets is that socks really aren't that difficult (if I can do them, anyone can.) If you want to try your hand at it, I'd suggest Silver's Sock Class or Lifestyle Toe Up Socks - No Swatch Needed for starters. Make up a pair in worsted weight yarn to see how everything works, then do whatever you want. There are videos galore to help with heels and toes.
