I've only been knitting for about a year and a half, so I don't have many socks to my name. Yet. All are knitted on size 0 DPNs, using a generic toe-up sock pattern.
These are the first pair I actually finished. Superwash merino. I saw a fingerless gloves pattern on Ravelry that used a similar stripe pattern and was inspired.
And the second pair. They're a wool/silk/alpaca blend in a gorgeous tweed and are a little tight around the ankle, and a little thick, but the yarn should stretch after a while.
You can see there how the heel came out too small.
Then there's the first socks I ever tried...
..and never finished. But I got one done! They're for my sister. Originally meant to be a Slytherin scarf, but the yarn was purchased when I was too much of a newbie to know that sock yarn =/= good scarf yarn. So Slytherin sock(s) they became.
Although the heel is crappy, they're the comfiest of the three. I think the orange/red pair is my favourite, though. My plan is to include cables in the next pair. Wish me luck.
