My first pair of socks!
I just now finished them about 10 mins ago. I'm pretty happy about how they came out but the not the bottom of the foots of the socks, I don't know they turned out like that, I'm pretty tight knitter. who knows?




Thanks to everyone who helped me with these!!

Very nice!!

That very yarn is sitting in my stash waiting to become socks.

It looks like the bottom of the one sock is from a ladder from where the DPNs were connected. At least it's on the bottom. Cause they look great otherwise.

Congrats on getting your first pr done! It's addicting you know! Looks to me like the 'holes' are just from where your stitches were divided on the needles, sometimes your stitches loosen up when moving from one needle to the next (I think they call this "ladders"). Anyway, great job!

Once you have worn them and washed them a few times that will even out I think it did on mine.

Thanks everyone. I know I will be knitting more socks. I just need more sock yarn. I really want to knit a pair of Jaywalkers.
