Socks Accomplished: My First Pair!

Ta Da! These are the first pair of socks that I have knit in my thirty odd year knitting adventure.


Why did I wait so long to knit a pair of socks?  They never really appealed to me until I ventured into the knitting blog world. All of the amazing socks you fiberistas were knitting! How could I not be tempted?

My next sock project is already percolating. I think I may try  Dodergok's Mitered Socks.

Will anyone else be sharing a new fiber experience over at Wonder Why Gal's this Fiber Arts Friday?

Happy fiber adventures!

They look awesome!! How do they feel?

I got stuck on mine when I reached the heel... but I think I know how to proceed now.

Really nice! I've knit socks a couple of times, but really wish I could embrace it more. Some people find it addictive, but I haven't gotten to that point yet.

Beautiful! Once you knit a pair of socks and wear them you'll be addicted. They're so fun!

Nicely done! Socks don't appeal to me either that much, yet. I may get around to it one of these days, we'll see!

I don't knit, but I gotta admit right here and now that I'm really JEALOUS of these socks you knitters are making. I've seen them on other blogs - - - they look so warm and cozy - - - and now I'm in covet mode.

Yikes - - - I believe there's a COMMANDMENT against that!
