I finished my first pair of socks. With any luck, I've attached a picture.

Nice, very nice job. I bet they are comfy. So are you addicted to sock knitting? Have you cast on the next pair? Ready to tackle toe-up?

Kudos for completing a pair!

Great job. I love knitting socks. They are so rewarding in that you can do them in a reasonable amount of time and you can give them away and people are impressed. I had a stash of socks for the holidays and now it is gone. Starting for next year's gifts already.

What kind of yarn did you use for these. Try working with some Koigu. It's dreamy merino.

Well done!!!
...those variagated yarns are such fun...
socks are my favorite thing to knit...because I can wear them...(I'm not really a sweater person...)

they look good. I'll confess I haven't finished a pair yet - as so far all my socks have been Christmas stockings to be felted - and I've done each one differently. But I was given some nice, special sock yarn by an evil enabler for Christmas - so I'll have to make a pair soon - and have kilt hose on the 'to do' list as well.
