Yet More Socks

Thanks to all of you who've been providing me with tips and words of encouragement.
This is my second pair of socks. I found a much more form fitting pattern to play around with.
I'm now on my third.
I'm beginning to look at socks as instant gratification and I think they may be building my confidence for more complicated projects-like perhaps a raglan sweater on circular needles.
Now, if I can only figure out how to insert the photo in the body of the e-mail, rather than as an attachment.

Well done Stephen, it is gratifying to have a nicely made pair of socks for not a huge investment of time.

Nice, Stephen. I'm working on my first sock now. I've finally acquired the knack for ladder-free circular knitting. I think I may be on my way to acquiring sock fever. But it's early days yet. I haven't even gotten to the heel or even learned how to do it yet. We'll see...

Very handsome looking socks Stephen. I remember the feeling as well when I knitted my first pair of socks.

If you think socks are instant gratification, you should try mittens. LOL

They look great. Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
