Socks!

Ta-da! My very first pair of socks. I must say I feel very accomplished. This is definitely the one knitted project I am most proud of. I didn't really have any problems with the pattern, it was very straightforward. Of course, I had knit that one practice sock that took forever. The first sock of this pair was finished in under a week and the second one took twice as long at least. Yikes! I really want to knit them two at a time from now on. They are pretty short because I was worried I would run out of yarn and of course I have lots leftover. I'm not sure of any ways to lengthen an item from the cast-on edge. Any ideas? Hopefully my kitchener stitch will improve, but I'm pretty pleased with the results. I will tell you, you need to knit socks, or get someone to do it for you. They feel so fabulous and massagey. Now I know what everyone was talking about.

Comments: I love them! While I was knitting them, thinking that I would have a pair of hand-knitted socks at the end was an unbelievable feeling!

Love the socks ! Once you start wearing hand knitted socks, nothing else will do. They are so soft, warm and squishy under the toes.
