For my first attempt at socks, I don't think they turned out too badly ... I wasn't overly thrilled with parts of the pattern though (I wasn't crazy about the way that the heel was done, it seemed to leave small holes where the short rows were done). I'll definitely be making more socks, but next time it will be a different pattern with a finer weight yarn
Those look great. I just finished my first socks today! I am wearing them now. Sooo warm. They are not perfect but I feel like I have accomplished something. I know you feel the same way. Good luck with the next pair.
