I did it! First sock ever!
I finally did it! Finally made my very own sock! Now, it doesn't fit terribly well and I have some flaws but who cares! It's the first one and I did it! I will be casting on the second one right away to have these to wear around the house. This makes two of my knitting goals for the year accomplished!

I used some Bernat Sox yarn on 2 circulars and followed the basic pattern in Socks Soar on Circular Needles. It was fun and I can see why everyone gets hooked on making these.

Awesome! I remember how great it felt to get the first sock under my belt! It's addictive
