FO: First pair of socks
Here's my first pair of socks. The yarn is Knitpicks simple stripes in the color storm and the pattern is the first one in Sensational Knitted Socks. I'm not sure I like the yarn, it's a bit rough. I'll see how they feel after they're washed.

My kitchener stitch toes are a bit wonky, and after I finished the second sock, I realized that I had done the toe of the first one wrong. I considered frogging, but they're only for me and they actually look like socks so I think I'll keep them just the way they are.

Those are very impressive for FIRST SOCKS! Geez. You should see mine!
I don't mind little mistakes, I often leave one in and just think of that um,
what is it, Arabic ? thing where they always have a mistake in the rug
because to make it perfect is to try and imitate Allah/God and ... shouldn't be done. Something like that.

That's the same yarn I chose for my first pair of socks -- but, mine aren't finished yet. Yours look fantastic!!

I made my first pair of socks from that same yarn. And it gets really nice and soft after washing. I love them and wear them all the time!

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I'm wearing them today, and they are fairly comfortable but I'm glad to hear that they will soften up a bit after washing. Knitting socks is really fun - I'm addicted already.
