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?
OTN: Corona, Miter square blanket, Charity blankets
FO: Forest Canopy Shawl, Easy Baby Bootees, Kitty Pi, Ms. Marigold, Twinkle Toes, Josh's socks, Hedera socks, Spring Beret, Ashley's Birthday socks, Socks for the DBF's mom, grey socks for the DBF, my first socks, reversible cable scarf, ribbed hat for the BF, Manos Del Uruguay afghan, and a whole bunch of dishcloths!
