I made a pair of socks. They aren't anything special, just worsted weight for warmth, Caron acrylic, sensible grey. I have put off making socks since I started knitting in 2010, but now I have overcome that hurdle. They aren't my best work, but I'm proud that I finished them both and they fit! Maybe I'll even get brave enough to use sock yarn one of these days.
I don't like the bind off that I used, but it is stretchy. If anyone knows of one that is stretchy that looks better off the foot, I'd enjoy learning it. While on, they look just fine.
