Congrats! I'm working on my first sock ever as we speak, and I thought I got the hang of it, but suddenly I was knitting backwards so the WS is on the outside. Oops!
The colors are really nice. I like the violet with the orange a lot. And I learned that if you want both socks to start on the same color, you have to remember what color the first sock began with and cut your yarn to that color for the next sock, then start knitting.
