...pair of socks!

I say this because I have knitted one, but it was a practice run. Here are my hot-off-the-dpns socks:






It didn't take me as long to finish this pair as I thought it would. I started getting second sock syndrome right before I did the graft for the toe (which is a little wonky so maybe a factor Huh) on the 2nd. So not too bad.  Cool

Here's the details
_____________

Pattern: from Silver's Sock Class (lurve it!)
Yarn: Memories 100% Merino Wool from Knit Picks in "Cape Cod"(ack! ack! some is on clearence and I'm broke!!!! Shocked) Nice and squishy.
Needles: size 2 dpns (knit on 4)

thanks for looking  Smiley

yeah, that's why i could never do a pair of socks, and why in the 4 years i've been knitting i never really finish anything, i hate doing the same thing twice for some reason. especially if the first one was the first time i made something like it, or the first time i tried a new technique, then it's all exciting, then i do the second and the excitement wore off, ha, but yeah i think these are great! you did a good job and i hope if i ever grow out of my little problem i can attempt socks like these. kudos!

Those look really nice.  I haven't gotten around to doing socks yet...hopefully by this fall when I get all these other things out of the way I can try it.  I love the stripes around the foot.
