FO: My first pair of socks ever!!! (Finally!)
Here's some pics of my first pair of socks! I've been working on these little by little since December. Well, to my credit, I knit one two socks, then the first was so much bigger than the second, I frogged the first, and reknit it. Now I've finally finished the pair and I'm very happy to be done with them

Those look great! I hope my first pair of socks (if I ever attempt them) look and fit half as good.

Great job, I like the colors.

I have 2 sets of DPN so I can knit both socks at once and match each part up so I don't have any problems with them being the same size (learned that the hard way!).

I agree with DeAnzaJig..I hope my first pair are close to as good as yours. I really like the colours of the sock yarns. Whoever developed them was clever as

Congratulations on finishing your first pair of socks! They appear to be a perfect fit, and that colour combo looks great with denim.

Those are so pretty! I'm in the same exact situation (frog first sock because it's too big and re-do) as you were with this pair of socks.

Your picture shows that it was worth the extra effort, though!!!
