Eyelet socks for my DD
This is my very first sock ever! Here is the first one before I frog it. The idea was to use up the remainder of a skein I used for making a neckwarmer, but using the pattern on the foot part as well is taking up too much yarn & I won't have enough for sock #2. I *really* don't want to buy another skein of this just for part of a sock - I'm not really too fond of the color but Kayla adores them. So, I'll just to your basic St st on the foot.

That sounds like a great idea, the eyelet will look really pretty just on the leg. I love that color too!

What a pretty pattern! The color is nice too. It shows off the pattern so well. Great job!

I think it would be more comfortable in a shoe with stockinette on the foot anyway. Pretty pattern though!

Wellllllllllllllllllll... Not *so* new anymore. Been at it since this past summer. Just too lazy to change my screen name, I guess. And, Jan, excellent point. Another good reason to frog the foot. Who'd want a pair of uncomfy socks?
