FO - my first socks
So I finished my Knitting Olympics project - my first pair of socks - just in time for my administrative assistant's birthday (they are a gift for her, in her favorite color). They were surprisingly easy and I love, love, love this yarn (Malabrigo). They are looser/slouchier than I would've wanted, but otherwise I'm thrilled.

Thanks, all!

Yep, Ingrid, I'm finding it very hard to let go of these luscious babies. Of course, if my admin. asst. knew how many times I had put them on my feet, I'm not sure she would want them.

Kristen, the pattern is Knitting Pure and Simple Beginner's Socks. I found it to be an extremely easy, very well-written pattern. I'm getting ready to cast on for a pair of men's socks that will be quite similar, also from Knitting Pure and Simple.
