Those are super cute...and kudos for doing so much so quickly...I have knitted off and on for a couple of years and can only do square things (no counting, increasing, etc.)!!  So great job!!!

One month?!  Really?!  You've just inspired me!!!  I know the basics of knitting but only how to knit a straight simple line and have been very intimdated to try anything beyond that, but if you could learn to do this in a month, maybe I could learn in 2?    Cheesy  Seriously, I'm going for it as soon as I finish up the million and 1 other different crafts on my to-do and half-finished lists!!!

Cute colors by the way!!!!!!!!

So cool!  I just bought the Stitch 'N Bitch book and am taking my first knitting class next week.  Your socks are awesome!  I hope I progress as quickly as you have!

Congrats on learning your new skills. The socks look pretty cool. Nice springy colors.

A month ago?  Dude.  It took me about 5 years of on-and-off knitting before I did anything more complicated than a blanket Wink and at least a couple of years after that before I was brave enough to try socks.  Great job!!

for not having knitted very long your stripes came out amazing. Awesome job...my first socks came out barely fitting past my toes Smiley

Amazing!! You did a lot better on your first pair of socks than I did on mine.
But be warned: sock knitting is very addictive. Grin
