socks, a sheep, a hedgie, some more socks
here are my first pair of socks.
specs: Silvers sock tutorial (magic loop two at once toe up) on size 7 KP circular. I made a couple of mods, adding ribbing to the instep, and a heel flap. yarn is Dream in Color 'cool fire-110' in classy (worsted weight)




my felted sheep! it's a fiber trends felted flock sheep, patons merino wool, and she's stuffed full with old (but clean!) socks (hence the 'more socks' title)



and here is an almost finished fiber trends huggable hedgehog, it's a birthday goft for my neice (she'll be stuffed with proper stuffing )

Nice job on the socks--I'll have to look at that tutorial and expand my knowledge some day, still using top-down on DPN's. Love that little sheep!

I LOVE the sheep in particular. I saw it's tail waggle!
That kind of item would be delightful for the pink ribbon activities etc too.

Beautiful socks! No way those are your first ever! I'm really impressed that you did the ML, 2-at-once, toe-up for your very first socks! Way to go!
