Is that Lion Brand Magic Stripes?  I have some of that color, but haven't used it yet.  It looks pretty good knitted up.

Sometimes, those ladders come out with washing, because the yarn will plump up a little after it gets wet.  I get those too sometimes, so I feel ya.  If you were using dpns to work the gusset, that gap pops up between the needles from the stitches being under tension at the needle intersections.

Good job on your first pair!  I hope it was fun and you make some more!

Yup, it is the magic strips yarn and the pattern from the label. Hopeful the ladders will go away after being washed. I can't to get more sock yarn now!

Congrats!  They look great.  I can't wait until I can post a pic of my first pair of socks.  Hopefully it will be soon.
