I know I'm not the first person to ever knit a sock, but this is a big deal to me!
I used the Socks pattern in First Knits by Luise Roberts and Kate Haxell because it was a cute pattern worked on two needles, which I thought was good for a first try. I skipped the color work altogether, maybe next time.
I used a nice handspun mohair blend and I swear I checked the gauge twice, and the pattern said the sock would fit an "adult medium", but I've discovered it's more of a men's shoe 13 or 14.
Good thing my brother has giant feet.
This picture is closer to the actual color of the yarn
The second shows the cute horizontal ribs in the pattern.
Now off to finish the second sock!
