Great job I love the blue colors. I'm working on my first sock now and have the cuff and leg done. Can't wait to get it finished. :XX:

Great job!



Your leg might be January white, but at least it's shaved. :rofling:

I used the Silver tutorial online sock class and it really was a cinch once I got the hang of the double points and got through the ribbing I practiced on some cheap acrylic yarn I had laying around so I am not going to complete the pair because I won't wear them but I just got back from the yarn shop down the street and they have tons of sock yarn I am gonna buy some next week and go crazy!! :XX:
