I'm so excited to have finished up my first pair of socks!! I had a little trouble deciding on what pattern to use, but finally settled on a really basic sock pattern, Socks by the Numbers from On The Needles. There's no need to get really fancy on your first pair, especially when the yarn stripes itself.
I'm kind of in love with knitting socks now. They're pretty quick, but so comfy to wear! And I can make them just how I want them, wide for my giant feet and calves, but not too tall. These are perfection.
There will definitely be more of these in my future, and there's just enough yarn left to make a tiny pair for my daughter!
