First socks finally finished
This is my first foray into the world of socks, and I have to say, I kind of like it. I probably started these around March and worked on them on and off for a while. Once the heel and foot construction made sense to me (thanks to some lovely KH members ) they sailed right along.

I'm working on another pair now in the same pattern to try to fine tune them a little, and then I might move on to a more complicated pattern. I understand now why everybody loves socks so much. It's so nice to just have a nice little project to take with you that you don't have to think about too much.

The yarn is Red Heart Heart & Sole in Spring Stripe. I kind of like the yarn better on the skein than I do knitted, but they certainly are colorful and unlike any socks that anybody I know has.

Ahhhhh...another sock addict in the making!

You did a terrific job on your first pair! Congratulations!

I find that no matter how many pairs I've knit, I'm always learning something new about construction and the way designers work various elements into these fun little projects.

I can't wait to see your second pair!!

Way to go! Aren't socks great?!? I used that yarn once and I don't want to use it again. I do really like Deborah Norville's sock yarn though.

I did rather enjoy the process. I didn't mind the yarn so much as the way the colors presented themselves, but I'm just telling myself my socks are full of personality.
