My first socks!
One of my knitting resolutions this year was to learn to make socks. I started my socks last June with help from my aunt. Something didn't "click" and I just set them aside. Well I picked them back up again in early January and I finished the first one on the 8th and the second one was finshed by the 18th! I already bought some yarn to make the DBF some socks too. Looks like I'm a sock knitter!
I made these out of Lang Yarns Super Soxx with 5 DPNs in size 2. The self-striping yarn made sure I wasn't bored and...they match!!!
I've been wearing them all day, so they look a little stretched out in the second picture. Do they remind anyone else of Heidi?
