My First Pair of Socks!!
after a few practice runs on scrap yarn, i finally made a pair of real socks

the color in the pic is really wonky, but the yarn is Sock Garden Hydrangea from Knit Picks (it's very pink and purple)

yay me!!




and i am now a full fledged sock convert - i already have another pair on needles and ordered yarn for about 6 more pairs
