My first pair of socks!

Happy Fourth! I finished my socks to celebrate!


These are definitely the most comfortable socks I own. The socks are from the same dye lot but the greens are different colors. That's ok - I still love them. I haven't worn them out yet, just around the house. Maybe when I have a few more pairs under my belt I will actually wear them out in public. I must say that it's very difficult to photograph socks. My feet looked way too big or funny. This took about 15 shots before I was happy with any of them.

I've started Rob's socks.

The yarn is Lang Jawoll Jacquard. I like the jacquard effect but the socks feel a little scratchy to me. I'm hoping that will disappear after washing them. And yes, I'm still using Magic Loop. I love it!

I love the pattern on Rob's socks! That's so neat to see what the yarn looks like.

Cute socks!! You should totally wear them out. They look great!

Your first socks rock! I agree with purly whites, you should definitely wear them out! There's no reason not to. I have sooo many projects to start right now, but I have been planning to try socks. Maybe I'll order that mississippi 3 print from yarn market to tempt me even more. :)

holy sock making skills. I am curious about knitting socks but have been a little afraid to. I want to do the magic loop with the socks but dunno where to start. Could you point me to some references?
