FO: First PAIR of socks
I posted my first sock on here a while back. I now have a PAIR of socks! I sort of experimented with sock #2 by going for a rounder toe. But it really doesn't matter since I have a long 2nd toe and it makes all my socks look pointy.

Forgot to say...they are made with XXL Trekking (can't remember the color/number)....I'll NEVER use that yarn again...it split SO easily and didn't feel very soft. BUT the socks DO feel good on.

I have a skein of that yarn in my stash, but haven't tried it yet. I got it at a fiber fair last year for a really good price! I only got one skein...will that be enough for a pair of socks like yours?

The skein is 2 1/2 ounces, 100 g, 459 yds. I think it's almost twice the size of a regular skein.

Great job on your socks!

Yeah! there are socks everywhere! Those are so pretty and look nothing like a "first pair" but rather "a pair of socks I whipped up"!
